County Board of Supervisors Approve 7-Year Capital Road Improvement and Preservation Program

by ECT

On Tuesday, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Capital Road Improvement and Preservation Program (CRIPP) for fiscal year 2018/2019 through 2024/2025.

The CRIPP is a programming document for the funding of capital road improvement and preservation projects within unincorporated Contra Costa County. It includes estimated project costs, funding source information, and scheduling information for known potential projects within the next seven fiscal years. It also includes revenue projections and a summary of estimated project-related expenditures for each funding source.

Adopting a CRIPP to guide our capital improvements will do several things for the County:

• Increase public awareness of how and where funds will be spent on our road system.
• Enhance public trust and increase funding transparency by demonstrating that funds are programmed and expended in accordance with an approved program.
• Encourage more public involvement in the programming and expenditure of our capital funds.
• Provide accurate accountability of whether our transportation system will meet an acceptable level of service to satisfy our growth management policies.
• Provide a basis for projecting staffing needs over the next seven years.
• Provide a budget tool to track expenditures of each type of funding utilized for capital improvements.

According to the County, SB 1 increases revenue for road repair and of the $5 billion annually anticipated to be raised, Contra Costa County will see about $20 million to $40 million over the next 2-3 years.

Since the county uses a majority of the gas tax funds for road operations and maintenance, a Proposition 6 repeal, if successful, would cause the county to revise its CRIPP. It could also mean a $21.8 million loss in funding in Fiscal Year 2019-20. Several projects that could be on the chopping block in East Contra Costa County over the next several years would be the following:

  • Vasco Road and Bryon Highway Improvements
  • Route 239 – Vasco Road/Byron Highway Connector Project
  • Marsh Creek Road Safety Improvements
  • Camino Tassajara Bike Lane Gap Closure
  • Marsh Creek Road Bridge Replacement (Bridge 143& 145)
  • Bryon Highway Bridge Replacement

Indeed, YES on 6 …… Notice how the Secretary of State Becerra changed the name on the ballot? What a POS he is.

Yes on 6 Oct 30, 2018 - 9:33 am

Yes on 6! The people approve new taxes not the politicians. The BOS is out of touch with real future needs regarding roads. They waste the money already provided for road works.The Vasco corridor is at capacity and yet thousands of new homes are being built. Big new money revenue yet we do not see it.The county is funneling money for their new county building while we sit in traffic. Taxes on roads have been increasing naturally every year with less maintenance or new roadway adjustments. Hwy 84 should connect to Vasco Rd meeting at Los Vaqueros. It’s not even on the BOS radar. All we see is smiles and grandstanding from county politicians. Vasco soon will be at a standstill twice as long everyday with all the new development in East County. Where in the heck is all that new money going?
