ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Department of Public Works (DPW) constantly solicits community
input to improve services and maintain County infrastructure, and
these efforts include identifying immediate and long-range road
resurfacing needs. Development of DPW’s annual roadway resurfacing and
construction program includes public input, operational needs, our
computerized pavement management system recommendations, and available
funding to implement projects throughout the unincorporated County.
Our pavement management program allows us to focus maintenance
resources on the best preventative maintenance measures and helps us
to choose the most appropriate and cost-effective surface treatment,
or resurfacing, ”to extend the service life of our pavement on
1,941.91 miles of County maintained roads.
NEW STATE FUNDING AVAILABLE
On April 28, 2017 the Governor approved the new transportation
funding plan entitled, “Road and Repair Accountability Act 2017”, and
the new plan increased funding to local agencies for road resurfacing
projects. As a result, DPW will be receiving approximately $538
Million in new funding over the next ten years for road maintenance
purposes. The State’s funding increases will be phased in over time.
This funding provides new opportunities to address DPW’s significant
road resurfacing needs. On May 2, 2017, the County Board of
Supervisors (Board) directed staff to use the new funding to pursue
additional resurfacing projects and achieve a Pavement Condition Index
(PCI), a commonly used pavement rating system, of 70 out of 100 within
five years. DPW’s current PCI is 60.
To better understand community priorities, DPW solicited input from
community planning and sponsor groups to assist in identifying road
resurfacing needs specific to each community. DPW’s annual roadway
resurfacing program included input from all 26 community/sponsor
groups to develop our annual roadway resurfacing program. The input
received from the communities will be routinely updated and used by
DPW to develop subsequent years of the program.
DPW must respond to unforeseen occurrences such as natural
disasters, public safety emergencies, and other changes that could
affect future project funding availability. Unexpected changes in
DPW’s annual program may be necessary to accommodate changing needs
throughout the County, but the resurfacing program presented here is
our estimate of the projects DPW plans to accomplish.
DPW’S PROGRAM GOAL
To identify the most effective means to properly maintain our County
roads and keep them safe and passable for our residents and visitors.
Maintenance engineers continuously survey roads in our annual program
to determine the most cost effective and appropriate surface
treatments to apply. These surface treatments can range from a simple
slurry seal to a more significant removal and replacement of the
entire asphalt surface. Once our field work is complete, more
specifics will be provided here on this website to identify the type
of surface treatments DPW will use for each individual road segment.
DPW’s annual resurfacing program will be routinely updated as the
plan further evolves. Currently, DPW has prepared project lists of
road segments for future year(s) and they are included on this site.
Typically, construction for each year of road maintenance projects
occurs in the warmer summer months.
DPW is sharing these project lists with utility companies and
adjacent cities to ensure proactive coordination of construction
projects between our agencies. This effort will reduce premature
damage to our roads through avoidable utility pavement cuts and will
improve the service life of the pavement.
DPW’s first year (2015-16) of its revised resurfacing program was
completed in June 2017 and updated in the interactive GIS map and list
of roads. These resurfacing projects included over 53 miles of
asphalt concrete overlays and surface seals. These projects also
included replacement of culverts and concrete drainage and
accessibility improvements. Resurfacing projects for the second year
of our program (2016-17) are in construction now and are expected to
be completed in the fall of 2017. These projects include over 50
miles of asphalt concrete overlays and surface seals, replacement of
culverts and concrete drainage and accessibility improvements. As a
result of the State’s new funding and Board direction, DPW updated our
next phase of projects for 2017-18 and the project has expanded to
include additional roads. For 2017-18, DPW’s program is tentatively
scheduled to go out to bid in early 2018 with construction beginning
in summer 2018, and the revised projects are estimated to include over
195 miles of road resurfacing, replacement of culverts and concrete
drainage, and accessibility improvements. The estimated total
resurfacing for the first three years of our revised program is
estimated at approximately 320 miles. DPW will continue to work on
future years of the road resurfacing program and will share updates on
this site when available. View the interactive GIS maps to see
lists of projects and roads for completed, current, and future
projects. Please follow this website to obtain the most current
information and updates.
Completed and Planned 14/15 to 17/18
Thank you for always watching out for DPW crews and equipment
working to keep our roadways – and you - safe.
