Picador Boulevard’s decline has become part of Genevieve Vigil’s life.
Every weekday morning she drives the Otay Mesa road to drop off her 4-year-old son, Dominic, at daycare and then continues on Picador to go to work. Deep cracks, uneven asphalt and a two-foot-wide pothole jolt her along the way. About every two weeks, Vigil said, the patched potholes in front of the Border View YMCA erode and leave bumps instead. Vigil is taking her car to the mechanic. Her wheel alignment is screwed up.
“It’s depressing,” Vigil said, standing along the boulevard on a recent afternoon.
