SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Mayor Jerry Sanders announced Tuesday that the city has committed another $10 million to street repairs.
That's on top of the $30 million set aside for street resurfacing this summer and an additional $47 million spent since 2010.
Nearly 200 miles of streets have been or will soon be resurfaced using that money.
"It took decades for our streets to crumble into disrepair and fixing them will take a long term commitment of will power and resources, but the numbers speak for themselves," Sanders said.
The latest round of street repairs is being paid for with a $25 million bond. The rest of the money will be used for other projects, including building a Mission Valley fire station.
