In May of each year, California counties are required to report any changes in roadway mileage to the State Department of Finance. This report is required per Section 2121 of the State Streets and Highways Code in order to apportion gas tax funds.
In a report to present to the County of Ventura Board of Supervisors next week, the County of Ventura reports that road mileage in the county covering the period May 2015 to April 2016 is 542.84 miles. This is 1.23 miles greater than last year's total (taking into account several adjustments).
That said, in its letter to the Board, the County indicates roadway mileage actually has no bearing on the amount of gas tax funds received under the Code because funds received are actually based on the number of vehicles registered in the County.
