Mayor Pauline Russo Cutter and the San Leandro City Council are proud to announce the completion of Phase I of the past year’s street rehabilitation project. As part of this phase of work, six street segments across the city that included Estabrook Street and San Leandro Boulevard were rehabilitated, representing more than $3 million in road construction and paving work. Most segments are fully complete, including much of the work along San Leandro Boulevard.
“I am so pleased to announce that these important road projects are now being completed,” noted Mayor Cutter. “Along with many other projects that will soon be coming on line, these efforts demonstrate the City Council’s commitment to improving the quality of San Leandro’s roads and infrastructure. We are so grateful to San Leandro voters for authorizing Measures BB and HH in 2014, which were instrumental in making this work possible.”
The City also moved quickly to put funds to work from state Senate Bill 1, signed into law this past April by Governor Brown. Senate Bill 1 authorized a 12-cents per gallon increase in the base state excise tax on gasoline, which is now providing a first-in-a-generation infusion of new funding to restore and repave local streets and roadways throughout the entire state of California. Combined, the recent state and local revenue measures have resulted in a significant expansion of San Leandro’s street rehabilitation program.
