The plans include <a href="http://lists.phoenix.gov/t/1412051/341392/23074/3/">Transportation 2050</a> and Arizona highway user revenue funded pavement maintenance projects to improve street conditions throughout the city.</p><p>The city's pavement maintenance budget includes $90 million per year through fiscal year 2023, by which time nearly 1,650 street miles will be treated. The City Council's action to advance funding to accelerate paving projects allows the city to significantly repair more of its most deteriorated streets and extend the lifespan of its aging street network. </p><p><img src="/streetssite/MediaAssets/19th%20Ave%20Cactus%20to%20Peoria.jpg" alt="" style="width:375px;margin:5px;" /> ​<br></p><p>"As long as we have cars and roads, we will have potholes. However, with the approval of new pavement maintenance projects throughout the city, road improvements will happen much faster," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. "As the fastest growing city, Phoenix needs safe roads and a strong public transportation system to keep ahead of population growth and today's vote ensures that we are planning not just for current residents but for future Phoenicians as well."</p><p>The planned projects were identified and prioritized based on street condition assessment data, field evaluations and public input. "The city held more than 75 public meetings across the city to gain extensive community input that helped the city prioritize which streets should be included in the pavement maintenance program," said Councilwoman Debra Stark, who chairs the Aviation and Transportation Subcommittee. "I am proud that this plan reflects the community's input, as well as street condition assessments and field evaluations."</p><p>To help the community stay informed and provide an easy way to see progress, the Street Transportation Department today launched a dashboard with near real-time information about pavement maintenance projects through 2023. The interactive dashboard allows users to sort projects by type, location and status.
