Measure M Funding

City Council approved the request to ask Sonoma County Transportation Authority (SCTA) officials to reallocate $9.5 million in regional Measure M sales tax revenue from the Fulton Road Improvements - Phase 2 project to the Hearn Avenue Interchange Improvements – Phase 3, a $28 million construction project.

Funding from Measure M - Traffic Relief Act, comes from a 20-year county sales tax voters approved in November 2004. A portion of Measure M funding helps support local street projects (LSP) program including the Santa Rosa Capital Improvement Projects for Hearn Avenue Interchange Improvements, Fulton Road Improvements and Farmer’s Lane Extension. The SCTA also allocates funding through the LSP program for annual roadway maintenance projects in Santa Rosa such as the Annual Slurry Seal treatment on Neighborhood Streets and the Annual Pavement Preventative Maintenance on Arterial Streets.
