Street Stories: San Mateo County
For years, the county of San Mateo has been deferring 4 million dollars a year in roadway work because of insufficient funding. The county dipped into reserves to help pay for roadwork, but those reserves are now all gone. That has led to a mammoth backlog of work in its 315 miles of streets and roads. In 2018, because of new transportation funding approved by the State Legislature, they county has begun to catch up on that backlog.
