Capital Improvements

Capital improvements are projects that increase the capital value of the infrastructure of the City. At the City of Victorville, staff designs projects dealing with roadways, storm drainage systems, sewer systems, and water supply systems. For larger and/or more complex projects that require specialized expertise, the City will use outside consultants to prepare the design.

The City Council approves a new capital improvement program (CIP) each year. The CIP contains more projects than can be completed by staff for any given year and are therefore carried into the next year. The projects in the 2015-2016 CIP Budget that are currently active are:

Answers to Questions about the CIP

Some of the roads I drive on need work. When is the City going to repair these roads?
The roadways included in the CIP are based on a combination of degree of degradation and traffic volume. Roadways receive a pavement condition index (PCI) rating ranging from 0 to 100, where 0 is a road that has totally failed and 100 is a brand new roadway in ideal condition. While we would like to be able to fix all the roadways with a rating lower than 70, the budget only allows us to fix the highest priority projects in any given fiscal year based on a mathematical formula using the PCI rating and volume of traffic. If your problem is minor, such as a pothole for example, you may contact our Maintenance Division at (760) 243-6365.

When is the CIP created and who makes the decision?
The CIP is approved on an annual basis by the City Council. The proposed CIP is created by the
City Engineer around March to May for presentation to the City Council for the following fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).

How soon after you begin advertising a project does construction actually begin?
Typically, construction begins about two months after advertising begins.

I'm having an issue with a contractor performing work near my home/business but cannot find the project listed here. Who do I call?
Not all construction projects within City right-of-way are funded by the City. Utility companies and private development frequently perform work within our right-of-way with an encroachment permit from the Engineering Division. Call (760) 955-5158 to report an issue and we will look into it.
