Smoother roads coming to San Francisco


(KTSF by Hellas Leung)

Are you tired of driving over San Francisco potholes?

Well, road repair work starts in March thanks to a $248 million dollar bond measure that voters approved last November.

The construction work will repave streets and fix potholes  in neighborhoods throughout San Francisco.   It  will also  seismically strengthen  deteriorating bridges, overpasses and stairways, without raising property tax  rates.

David Chiu, President  of the S.F.  Board of Supervisors says,  “I actually spent this morning,  biking, walking and in cabs going through four different districts and I experienced many potholes in this district .”

Mohammed Nuru, the Acting Director for the Department  of Public Works  adds,  “The bond was put  together based on ratings of various streets in San Francisco that  are  most in need. These streets get the  priority .”
