California's Road User Charge Pilot

As I travel around throughout California, I notice that the road conditions change drastically from one area to the next. In 2012, ASCE Region 9 released it’s most recent California Infrastructure Report Card giving Transportation a C- letter grade. At the time of the report, the California Streets and Roads Needs Assessment rated the overall Pavement Condition Index (PCI) across the state to be just 66 on a 100 point scale.
