Why does the City need additional funding for street repairs? Doesn't Measure K-14 cover these projects?

Measure K-14 was approved by voters in 2014 to fund street rehabilitation and repair. The focus of Measure K-14 was repairing local residential streets which is underway with sufficient funding from Measure K-14 to repair these streets throughout the city.  However, Measure K-14 funding will not cover repairs of major city streets that are regional in nature with high traffic volumes such as West Grand Avenue, Oak Park Boulevard, and 4th Street.  The City estimates a total funding need over $10 million in repairing these major streets of significant size throughout the city. In addition, Measure K-14 funds do not provide funding for ongoing maintenance of streets as additional funding will be needed for ongoing maintenance of the local streets repaired under Measure K-14.
