SAN DIEGO — More than 250 miles of city streets have been repaired so far this year, according to the San Diego Mayor’s Office.

Mayor Kevin Faulconer is expected to make the announcement at a late-morning news conference Wednesday at the site of one of the repaired streets in Encanto.

The mayor’s goal was to have 1,000 miles of streets repaired over five years, with 300 of those miles expected to be completed by the end of the fiscal year at the end of June, according to mayoral spokesman Craig Gustafson. The project was ahead of schedule.

Faulconer was expected to be joined at the news conference by City Councilman Mark Kersey, who is chairman of the council’s infrastructure committee, and Paz Gomez, the city’s deputy chief operating officer for infrastructure and public works.
