Measure B Projects

Your Tax Dollars at Work

In November 2000, Alameda County voters reauthorized Measure B -- the half-cent sales tax for transportation expenditures.  The City of Livermore receives about $1 million annually from this tax source for street and trail improvements.  The following projects used approximately $1.2 million of Measure B funds for streets and trails for the prior Fiscal Year 2012-2013:

Project Name     Funded by Measure B    
Annual Pavement Overlays $400,000
Annual Slurry Seal $100,000
Annual Sidewalk Repair Program $190,000
Design of Various Trail Projects   $110,000

Approximately $1.3 million in Measure B funds (streets and trails) is budgeted in the Capital Improvement Program for the current Fiscal Year 2013-2014.  These projects include:

Project Name     Funded by Measure B    
Trail Repairs $445,000
Trail Design $65,000
New Trail Construction $275,000
Annual Slurry Seal $100,000
Annual Pavement Overlays $200,000
Annual Sidewalk Repair Program $300,000

In November 2014 Alameda County voters authorized Measure BB which augmented and extended the sales tax to 2045.  This will provide approximately $1.74 million annually of Measure B and BB funds for Livermore's streets and trails projects.
