Sonoma County will spend $40 million on road maintenance and paving projects during the 2022 and 2023 construction seasons, including several projects in El Verano.
The Board of Supervisors approved a two-year Pavement Preservation Program to repair or replace pavement on 43.44 total miles of local roads in unincorporated Sonoma County.
Candidate projects were identified based on roadway attributes including average daily traffic, pavement condition, relevance to bike and bus modes of travel and location relevant to access public safety facilities.
“This program funds large-scale paving and sealing projects, drainage improvements, vegetation removal, as well as upgrades to street signs and striping, with a focus on heavily traveled roads that are vital to local economic development, agriculture, recreation, and tourism,” said Lynda Hopkins, Chair of the Board of Supervisors.
The Board also authorized $20 million in PG&E settlement funds to go towards an unprecedented infrastructure investment program repairing roads, retaining walls, culverts, an emergency vehicle access road, shoulder widening, bike lane striping, funding of a bridge design and a drainage study, and the preparation of a County-wide disaster debris removal plan.
