Reallocation Request for Measure M Funding

Hearn Ave Interchange Measure M

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 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.

Phase 2 – widen Hearn Ave from Corby Ave to Dutton Ave (COMPLETE),
Phase 3 – reconstruct Hearn Ave Overcrossing and Interchange (Design at 90%).

Phase 1b – widen Fulton Road from Guerneville Road to Piner Road (Design at 90%)
Phase 2 – convert existing signalized intersection of Fulton Road and SR12 into a full interchange (Not Started)

Farmers Lane Extension

Phase 2 –Kawana Springs Road to Petaluma Hill Road (Design at 90%)
