List of County's 2008-09 Prop. 1B projects approved

The County of San Diego will receive $10,417,594 from Proposition 1B funding for Fiscal Year 2008-09, and on November 19 the San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved the county’s list of local streets and roads projects which will be funded from Proposition 1B revenue.

The supervisors’ 4-0 vote, with Ron Roberts absent, also established the appropriations into the county’s Department of Public Works’ Fiscal Year 2008-09 detailed work program.

In the event that any of the projects are under budget, the resolution states that any surplus Proposition 1B revenue will be used for the county’s road resurfacing and culvert replacement project.

Proposition 1B was approved by the state’s voters in the November 2006 election and provides $2 billion for California’s local streets and roads.

Although Governor Schwarzenegger’s proposed FY 2008-09 budget did not include any Proposition 1B funding, Assembly Bill 88 and 1252 were passed into law to allocate the funding.

The resolution authorizes the spending of $4,137,594 of estimated appropriations, along with the allocation of an additional $2.5 million should savings be realized on other listed projects, for road resurfacing and culvert replacement at various locations throughout the county.

Other appropriations for projects at various locations throughout the county will provide $1,050,000 for bridge methacrylate sealing, $680,000 for culvert liner installation, $360,000 for culvert repair, $240,000 for Portland cement concrete curb, gutter, and sidewalk repair and replacement, and $50,000 for Portland cement concrete crack cleaning and sealing.

Another $540,000 was allocated for traffic operations improvements throughout the county including pedestrian countdown modules, light emitting diodes, and traffic controller cabinet replacements.

An additional $500,000 was allocated for drainage and traffic signal installation in Alpine, while $2,860,000 was allocated for traffic signal interconnect projects in the 4S Ranch area and at two Spring Valley locations.
