Auto Club’s Role
… because we’ve been an advocate for mobility
for over 100 years
… because our 52 million members nationally,
including 6 million in southern California, need
and want options for travel
… because California
needs mobility to
prosper and grow

Good and Adequate Roads =
Mobility and Safety =
Economy =
Quality of Life.
• Automobiles: 92% to 95%
of all home-to-work trips,
98% of all trips
• Highways: Almost all trips,
including transit trips

The Results...

Breakdown of Maintained Centerline Miles by Agency in
California
California’s 58 counties and 480 cities
maintain 141,235 centerline miles of
highways (82% of the state’s total)

California’s Pavement Condition Index
(PCI)

66 (At Risk)
54 (if funding remains
the same)
The unfunded backlog will
double from $39.1 billion to $63.6 billion
71-80 (good)
50-70 (at risk)
25-49 (poor)
11
12
What Is Needed
• $70.5 billion over the next 10 years to
bring the PCI to BMP or most cost effective
condition
• $2.3 billion will be needed annually to
maintain the BMP conditions once it is
achieved
• $3.1 billion is needed to maintain the
existing conditions …….. More than
TWICE the current level of funding at
$1.42 billion/year
13
What shall (or can) be done ?
• To even simply maintain the existing
condition for our investment, valued at $271
billion, we NEED MORE MONEY
1) Efforts by the California Transportation Commission
(CTC)
2) The newly, soon to be formed, Stakeholders Working
Group
3) The federal transportation reauthorization bill
4) Regional transportation sales taxes, etc
• The squeaky wheel gets the
grease
14
Adapting to New Economic Realities
• Changing the red tape to red carpet
• More targeted and focused application
for competitive funds
• Forming inter-jurisdictional collaborative
• Using economy-of-scale in delivering
projects
• Innovate funding sources (PPP, tolling,
etc)
• Technological breakthroughs
15
Adapting to New Realities
Working Smarter – Delivering More with Less
