    The City of San Diego is making it easier for residents to check when their street will be resurfaced with a new feature launched Friday.

    Hosted on sandiego.gov, officials said the “Streets Repaving Project” will be a monthly updated list of areas where repaving work will take place, said Alex Roth, city official.

    The $47 million project will cover more than 1,000 city blocks (almost 112 miles), possibly making it the largest venture of its kind in city history, said Roth.

    “Fixing cracked streets is one of the most basic functions of city government,” said Mayor Sanders in a media release. “We know San Diegans are intensely interested in this topic, which is why we’re working aggressively not just to perform the work but also to keep the public updated on our progress.”

    Thought the list does not provide any specific dates, it should still be helpful to some. Prior to the feature, some residents weren’t given an early warning of when resurfacing projects were planned for their streets, Roth said.

    As of September 2, the list included streets resurfaced in August and provided a collection of streets that should be done in September. “This is a best estimate at this time,” Roth said of the tentative list, “if it doesn’t get done in September, it will get done in early October.”

    Areas set to be resurfaced in September include Logan Av., National Av., La Jolla Village Dr., Market St., 28th St. and Genesee Av. among others.

    More than 50 miles of city streets have been resurfaced since April 2010 during the project, according to the city.
