This year, over 18 lane miles of roads in the City are receiving an overlay or slurry seal to smooth your ride and prolong the life of our road system. The City primarily uses State gas taxes, Senate Bill 1 (SB 1) funds, Measure B, Measure BB, and Local Vehicle Registration Fees to maintain the transportation network, which is just one of the City’s infrastructure assets. Other assets include buildings, walls, and landscape areas.
In all, the City owns and maintains over $3 billion worth of infrastructure. It takes millions of dollars annually to keep those assets in shape. Livermore needs to spend more in the long run to maintain and rehabilitate its infrastructure system. To address this, the City has embarked on an intensive Asset Management Program to evaluate its assets and identify the best long-term strategies before critical infrastructure starts to fail.
