Annual Street Overlay/Rehabilitation 2016-17
Engineering and Transportation staff rate and track the pavement condition, which is called the Pavement Condition Index (PCI), of every street in San Leandro. Streets in poor condition, with a PCI of 25 and above, can be repaired by milling or grinding off the top layer of pavement and installing three to four inches of new pavement. A mill and fill or overlay project such as this is more expensive than a cape seal but cheaper than replacement of the street section.
Streets that have reached the end of their useful life must be replaced. Cement is typically mixed into the soils below the road, after which a new pavement section is installed. This is the most expensive type of street rehabilitation work that we perform. Without this project, the average condition of the City's streets will decline. Streets that can be maintained at a moderate cost now will degrade to the point that more expensive repair is needed.
For this year’s project, construction is currently underway to complete preventative maintenance paving improvements on selected streets throughout the City.
For a map and list of streets scheduled for rehabilitation during this project, click Annual Overlay/Rehabilitation 16-17 List of Streets.
Curb ramps along these streets segments will be upgraded to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act standards in advance of the planned paving activities.
A proposed striping plan for the intersection of San Leandro Blvd. and Best Ave. (shown in the above drawing) is an interim solution to calm traffic and provide orderly turning movements at the intersection. After implementation of this interim improvement plan, the Engineering & Transportation Department will continue to explore more efficient and safe mitigation plans for this location. To view the plan and make comments or ask questions, visit our Virtual City Hall.
This project was made possible with General Funds, Gas Tax, a CalRecycle grant, Measure B and Measure BB funds. Measure B and Measure BB funds are administered by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC).
Bancroft/Sybil Signal Improvements
At the intersection of Bancroft Avenue and Sybil Avenue, this project will add protected left-turn phases (left turn arrows) for three of the four approaches with dedicated left-turn lanes; upgrade the traffic signal hardware and replace any deficient curb ramps adjacent to the work. The improvements will improve the overall traffic safety and traffic efficiency of the intersection.
Construction is planned for summer 2017.
Funding for this project is provided through the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) administered by California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).
Annual Street Sealing 2016-17
San Leandro City streets are organized into four asphalt concrete (AC) maintenance areas. This 2017 project will apply preventative surface maintenance treatments to a number of streets in south west quadrant of the City.
Streets in the subject quadrant are evaluated on their condition and selected for the appropriate surface treatment. Treatments include slurry seal, asphalt rubber chip cape seal or micro-surfacing.
The project is in design phase and construction will be completed in 2017. A complete list of streets can be found here.
This project was made possible with Gas Tax and Measure B funds. Measure B funds are administered by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC). Information regarding this and other regional Measure B funded projects can be found at the Alameda CTC's website.
Fiber Conduit Networking Extension Project
To promote business growth, the City desired to expand its high speed communication infrastructure into under-served industrial areas of the City. The City applied for and acquired a $2 million grant from the United States Economic Development Agency (EDA) for installation of communications conduits. With this grant, the City has already expanded its communications network capability with the installation of over eight miles of conduit ready to receive fiber optic cable.
The expansion includes:
- Alignment north along Doolittle Drive to the City border and around the Adams Avenue Tract;
- Loop around Marina Boulevard, Monarch Bay Drive, Fairway Drive and Catalina Street for future Shoreline service;
- Alignment along the Alvarado Street and Teagarden Street industrial corridors; and
- A critical loop separation between City Hall and the Main Library.
Utilizing the remaining grant balance, this project will add approximately 1.2 miles of additional conduit along Washington Avenue, completing a network loop between the City's Public Works Service Center and conduit in San Leandro Boulevard at Polar Way. The alignment also includes conduit to three traffic signals for future signal interconnects and conduit to the San Leandro Hospital and the Ghirardelli Chocolate properties.
Construction on this project has begun and is anticipated to be completed in fall 2017.
This project is funded by US EDA grant funds.
Annual Overlay/Rehabilitation Project 2015-2016
The week of May 8th will mark the last week of paving for the City’s Annual Overlay/ Rehabilitation 2015-16 project. Marina Boulevard between Merced Avenue and the I-880 southbound on-ramp is scheduled for rehabilitation and will be the last street segment paved for this project.
Streets scheduled for rehabilitation during this project can be found here.
A contract was awarded on this project in fall 2016 and construction is ongoing as weather permits. Work is expected to be fully complete in summer 2017.
To date this project has re-constructed Rose Drive north of San Leandro Boulevard. Curb ramps have also been upgraded along these streets segments to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act standards in advance of the planned paving activities.
This project was made possible with Gas Tax and Measure B funds. Measure B funds are administered by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC).
Information regarding this and other regional 'Measure B' funded projects can be found on Alameda CTC's website at http://www.alamedactc.org.
Annual Sidewalk Program
This annual project removes and replaces damaged sidewalk at various locations throughout the city. This project keeps the public right of way safe for pedestrians by removing tripping hazards. Locations in need of repair are usually reported by property owners adjacent to the damaged area. Our Sidewalk Program is described in more detail at the following link: Annual Sidewalk Program
This year's project is underway.
