For the 3rd consecutive year, BSS was able to surpass the 2000 lane mile mark for pavement preservation. As a result, the Bureau is able to maintain the average pavement condition index (PCI) of the city at a stable 62 ("C" grade). Even more remarkable is the fact that the BSS reached this benchmark with fewer employees today then three years ago. Streets are the arteries of the city and the avenues to improve the economy. Los Angeles has the largest municipal street network in the nation with 28,000 lane miles that are enough to build a four lane highway from our city to Paris, France.
