Smooth Streets Program

Program Description

The Smooth Streets Program reconstructs roads that have reached the end smoothstreetsof their service life.

This is a special program that addresses streets which can no longer be preserved as part of our regular road maintenance. Approximately 22 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 15 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.

Project Coordination:

We coordinate with the Clean Water Program, PG&E, CalWater, and other utilities 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, and other buried infrastructure. This early coordination is important because it can take anywhere from nine to 24 months to relocate one mile of buried utilities.

Active Construction Segments:

Phase 3 of the Smooth Streets program is nearly completed, with only some signs remaining to be replaced.

The street segments (Phase 3) are shown below:

Phase 4 of the Smooth Streets program is also underway. Project is currently wrapping up for Fall 2023 and will be suspended during Winter 2023 with tentative resume Spring 2024 for the Full Depth Reclamation streets. McGuire and Hester is the City's contractor and is responsible for issuing scheduled notifications.
