Measure P FAQs

$17.2 million for 728 street segments - A street segment is a portion of a street defined from intersection to intersection- basically each block. These streets were identified for inclusion by the City's pavement management system. The street listing was identified at Council meetings and actions that led to the justification for a ballot initiative.

$10.08 million for ADA upgrades - Federal Law requires City's to bring its facilities into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) when it performs rehabilitation work to infrastructure (i.e. streets). Activities such as asphalt overlay or road reconstruction require that additional work be completed to bring accessory components (i.e. curb ramps) into compliance with current standards. Work such as pothole repair and slurry seals are considered maintenance and do not meet the threshold to mandate compliance.

$2.72 million for storm drain repair - Work has been identified to bring the lowest rated storm drain pipes into a state of good repair (approximately 5400 lf). Additional funding was identified to maintain storage ponds and replace pumping infrastructure.

$2 million for sidewalk repairs - Sidewalk work will be performed to repair the highest prioritized sidewalk displacement (type 3- displaced more than 3/4").

Traffic Calming Measures - The funding was identified to rehabilitate existing street infrastructure. Traffic calming does not fit in that description. Items such as bulb-outs at intersections will be 'driven' by the need to make ADA ramps compliant.

Curb and Gutter Repair - Functional curb and gutters will not be replaced even if it is not aesthetically pleasing.

Driveways - With vary minor exceptions, work on driveways will not occur (the exception is to meet compliance for an ADA corner ramp and there is a conflict with an existing ramp).

Neighborhoods - In general terms, work will occur on the eastern and western ends of the City and work will progress towards the center.

Street/ADA Work -

  • Street segments will be field evaluated to confirm the appropriate treatment.
  • Areas that are to receive maintenance work (slurry), will be packaged together for construction. The anticipation is that two slurry packages will go out each of the four years (spring and fall). It is very likely that the slurry work will occur on a City wide basis.
  • Areas to receive rehabilitation will be analyzed for ADA compliance.
  • ADA ramp design and construction will occur.
  • When compliance is achieved, a paving package will be prepared and work will occur. Paving work will likely be more concentrated to specific areas.
