Street Safety: Road Repaving Program Begins With 25 Blocks

San Francisco Road Repaving Program Begins With 25 BlocksThe Department of Public Works (DPW) has shovels hitting the ground with the $248 million three-year Road Repaving and Street Safety Program (Streets Bond) program well under way, as it officially marks the initial phase of construction with the completion of the first 25 newly repaved city blocks.
