The most common answer from Reddit users when asked if the city’s roads will melt this summer is no.
The answer isn’t that simple.
The city of Portland has already spent $1.3 million of its rainy-day funds to replace roads in several areas, including its east side, which will cost about $400,000 per lane.
The city’s transportation department estimates that the city will be able to recover $1 million in cost overruns that have resulted from replacing the roads.
But the question is whether the city can recover its entire cost overrun of $2.3 billion in construction and repair costs, the same amount that is expected to be spent by the state and the federal government.
That could take a few years.
The Oregonian/OregonLive analyzed state spending on road maintenance and construction in 2017.
The data shows the cost of all construction projects in Oregon in 2018 is projected to be $1 billion, with $300 million of that going to pay for roads.
The federal government has said it will spend $300 billion to upgrade roads and highways over the next 20 years.
The federal government and Oregon are already spending more than $3 billion a year to repair roads and other public infrastructure in the state.
The state has said the roads are safe to drive and that it has already paid more than half a billion dollars for repairs and repairs to existing roads.
But the federal Department of Transportation says the costs are higher and will likely rise even higher over time.
“It’s really hard to quantify how many additional costs Oregonians will be faced with, especially when we’re talking about millions of dollars and billions of dollars of additional costs to be absorbed by the rest of the state,” Oregon State Highway Patrol Commissioner Ron Hahn said.
“There are a lot of unanswered questions about the safety of our roads.”
