Smooth Streets Program
The Smooth Streets Program reconstructs streets that have reached the end of their service life.
This is a special program that addresses roads which can no longer be preserved as part of our regular road maintenance. Approximately 20 miles of streets have been identified for reconstruction based on visual inspection and their Pavement Condition Index.
Since its inception in 2013, the program has restored 12 miles of our City streets. In 2015, local voters approved Measure S, a quarter-cent sales tax extension that supports community-identified priorities like the Smooth Streets Program.
We coordinate with the Clean Water Program, PG&E and CalWater to minimize avoidable expense and inconvenience to community members.
When utility conflicts are found, we will request that the private utility companies relocate their pipes, wires, or other buried infrastructure. In can take anywhere from 9 to 24 months to relocate a mile of buried utilities.
