By Miriam Raftery

August 29, 2015 (San Diego)—California highways have $57 billion in deferred maintenance and our state now ranks 45th out of 50 states in overall highway performance.  Over half of our state’s highways need rehabilitation and 28%of bridges need repairs or replacement. But there is not enough money available to solve these problems, which are getting worse as time goes by. Those are among the dismal facts presented at a Cal Trans forum on transportation issues presented in San Diego this week.
