No money to fix most of city’s roads
Placerville City Council received some dire news on Tuesday from the Public Works department: currently there is no designated funding source for the repair of 53 percent of the city’s roadways.
The city of Placerville maintains a little more than 48 miles of centerline roadway. The funding source for maintenance and reconstruction is currently limited to that which is received from the federal Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP). State funds are “exchanged ” for RSTP funding and distributed to the El Dorado County Transportation Commission annually for distribution to cities and the county for various transportation purposes.
