Calimesa Pavement Plan
On March 15, 2021, the City’s recently completed Pavement Management Program study was presented to Council. The study included the 41 miles of paved roadways inherited from the County when the City incorporated in 1990. The Pavement Condition Index (PCI) for 312 roadway segments ranged from 40 to 100 with an average 63. Streets with PCI greater than 70 were not recommended for rehabilitation. The study indicates that the cost to rehabilitate all of the streets in the City is estimated at more than $7.3 million.
On June 7, 2021, City Council approved the 2021-22 Budget that included $314,400 of Measure A funding for roadway rehabilitation projects together with an additional $1,000,000 allocation from the General Fund for the Pavement Management Program. On August 2, 2021 City Council Meeting, Council allocated its first installment of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) approximately $1,095,000 of funding for streets in 2021-22, for a total budget amount of approximately $2,409,400.
