San Diego County’s Board of Supervisors Wednesday unanimously approved roughly $42 million of road resurfacing and rehabilitation work to be done next year on a six-page list of roads in unincorporated areas.

The complete list of roads stretching through numerous communities, includes work to be done in Alpine, Bonsall, Boulevard, Crest, Fallbrook, Jamul, Julian, Lakeside, Lincoln Acres, Pine Valley, Ramona and Spring Valley.

The list will be sent to state officials to qualify for approximately $13 million in funding from the new state gas tax that took effect this year to help rebuild roadways throughout the state.

The Road Repair and Accountability Act, Senate Bill 1, was signed into law by the governor in April.

The rest of the funding will come from county sources, according to officials.

The board’s approval of the list clears the way for the County Department of Public Works to solicit bids from companies to do the resealing and resurfacing work.

The road work is expected to begin in spring 2018 and be completed by the end of the year.

Of the roughly 195 miles of road work, 115 miles will receive asphalt overlays and 80 miles will receive slurry seal treatments.

The $42 million project is part of a larger five-year county plan to improve the nearly 2,000 miles of roadways in the unincorporated areas.

San Diego County expects to receive $538 million from Senate Bill 1 over the next 10 years, according to officials.
