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 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.

Project Coordination:S Idaho Street between 4th and 7th Completed in 2018

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, or 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.
