Local Road Maintenance Program and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)

Measure M provides 20% of its revenues for Local Street Rehabilitation. Rehabilitation funds are used on maintenance activities such as pothole repair, slurry seals, and overlays. 

 The Measure M funds ($401,459.31) were used to complete the reconstruction of Stony Point Road between Sebastopol Road and Hearn Avenue. The work involved the reconstruction of the failing pavement on Stony Point Road between Highway 12 and Hearn Avenue. The purpose of this project is to ease traffic congestion by widening Stony Point Road to four lanes from Hearn Avenue to Sebastopol Road. The addition of travel and turn lanes, new sidewalks, curb ramps to current ADA standards, bicycle lanes, bus turn out and updated traffic signal upgrades, including a new traffic signal and two pedestrian flashers, and pedestrian z-crossing will increase road safety along this vital north-south corridor.
Measure M funds ($584,477.51) were used for the design and construction phases of the 2017 slurry seal contract. This project included a few localized minor pavement dig outs, applied slurry seal, and installed new traffic stripes and pavement markings on approximately 16.3 center line miles of City streets. Attached are photos from Brookwood Avenue, So. A Street, Gordon Lane and 7th Street four of the streets included in the contract. City crews prepared the streets by grinding off pavement markings and removing pavement markers, notifying residents and set up traffic control. The contractor was responsible for the application of the slurry seal.

Measure M funds ($400,000) were used in the construction phase of the 2017 pavement preventive maintenance contract. This project included localized pavement dig outs, applied slurry seal, and installed new traffic stripes and pavement markings on the following City street sections:

Work completed with ITS funding: 

Measure M funds ($235,000) were used to continue maintenance of existing adaptive traffic control signals on College Avenue, Guerneville Road, Stony Point Road, and Mendocino Avenue totaling 46 signals. Santa Rosa Avenue was converted to adaptive traffic control from Maple Avenue to Burt Street and continues to be monitored. Marlow Road at Monroe School which is on an adaptive corridor, was converted to a Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA) protected permissive signal in August 2018. Work was also completed on moving toward an updated traffic signal software and controllers for the remaining 150 signals. This conversion will be gradual over several years as funds become available.
