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 $1.24 million of Measure B funds for streets and trails for the prior Fiscal Year 2014-2015:

Project Name     Funded by Measure B    
Annual Pavement Overlays $400,000
Annual Slurry Seal $420,000
Annual Sidewalk Repair Program $270,000
Design and Construction of Various Trail Projects   $551,500

Approximately $1.5 million in Measure B funds (streets and trails) is budgeted in the Capital Improvement Program for the current Fiscal Year 2015-2016.  These projects include:

Project Name     Funded by Measure B    
Trail Design $272,500
Annual Sidewalk Repair Program $300,000
Annual Slurry Seal $  79,000
Annual Pavement Overlays $232,000
Acquisition of Downtown Paseo $390,000
Miscellaneous Pedestrian Improvements $200,000
Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan     $  50,000

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.
