Repairing Streets And Roads

October 27, 1989|Clipboard researched by Elena Brunet, Susan Davis Greene and Janice L. Jones / Los Angeles Times; Graphics by Thomas Penix / Los Angeles Times

Beginning in fiscal year 1986/87, the amount of money spent on road repair, maintenance and construction in the county increased dramatically. That year and the next, fiscal 1987/88, the most recent year for which information is available, nearly a quarter-billion dollars went toward street maintenance, road reconstruction, rehabilitation and repair and a host of other similar projects.

Irvine was clearly out front in 1987/88, spending almost twice as much, $42.8 million, as the second-highest spender, Anaheim ($22.1 million). Irvine's per capita spending was also far higher than any other city.

Here's a look at the five-year trend in spending and the per capita spending and percentage of total spending for fiscal 1987/88:
