California Senate Bill 1 (SB1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 will fund critical transportation infrastructure projects throughout our state. SB1 is funded through gas/diesel taxes and a new annual vehicle fee. The City of Santa Rosa Transportation and Public Works have identified important backlogged street/road repairs that will rehabilitate failing pavement and enhance bicycle and pedestrian travel for Santa Rosa residents.
The League of California City's has estimated that Santa Rosa will receive a total of $2,935,933 for FY 2018-2019. The City anticipates that SB1 will generate $3.9 million in additional road maintenance funds once fully implemented. Even with this new funding, we are still left with a shortfall of approximately $10 million annually.
City of Santa Rosa has a $1.1 billion dollar / 507 mile street
system, with streets varying from two-lane (residential) streets to six-lane
(arterial) streets. With an average annual maintenance budget of
approximately $5.4 million dollars, Santa Rosa’s roadway Pavement
Condition Index (PCI) has steadily declined to 60, at the line between “good”
and “fair” condition, with the Bay Area average PCI being 66 or “good”. Recent
evaluation with our pavement management program has concluded that we should be
spending at least $18 million per year just to maintain the existing pavement
conditions at 60.
the SB1 funding it will be very difficult for us to ever achieve a goal of
keeping our arterial and collector streets in good condition let alone look at
gas tax costs an average of $.35 cents per day. Senate Bill 1 has provided
needed revenues to rebuild our roads, proposition 6 would repeal those funds.
