SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Road work began on Allied Road Tuesday morning where crews are resurfacing the street. 

The road work is part of Mayor Faulconer's pledge to repair 1,000 miles of streets in San Diego over the next five years.

Allied Road has long been considered to be one of the worst roads in the city. According to a report released in July, the San Diego area was ranked the eighth-worst in the nation in terms of bad roads, with 51% considered to be in poor condition. San Diego was ranked ninth for additional costs to motorists due to road conditions, at an annual average of $843.

In July, the city began a $74 million project in which it plans to fix more than 300 miles of road in Fiscal Year 2016, which began July 1st.

The 1,000 miles of planned road work will fix more than one-third of San Diego’s street network.
