BACKGROUND:

Section 2121 of the California Streets and Highways Code requires that in May of each year, each county shall report to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) “any additions or exclusions from its mileage of maintained county highways.”  This report typically takes the form of a certification of the total mileage of the County of San Mateo’s (County’s) maintained road system.  The County reported to Caltrans in May 2019 that the total County maintained road system mileage as of December 31, 2018 was 316.228. Your Board has adopted similar resolutions directing the reporting of the total number of maintained miles in previous years.

 

DISCUSSION:

This year, the proposed total County maintained mileage as of December 31, 2019 to be reported to Caltrans in May 2020 is 316.157 miles. There was an addition of 0.275 miles of roads and a subtraction of 0.346 miles into the County’s maintained road system during 2019. 

 

Exhibit “A” to the resolution provides the summary of the County of San Mateo Maintained Road Mileage, as of December 31, 2019.

 

The County of San Mateo had expected to receive $16.1 million in gas tax revenue and an additional $10.9 million in Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account related Senate Bill 1 funding for the 2019-20 Fiscal Year, prior to the Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the shelter in place Orders.  The impact of COVID-19 to this revenue is not known at this time and may not be known for several months.  The duration of the shelter in place requirements will have a significant impact on the revenue and revenue projections.  The Department of Public Works uses these funds to maintain the County of San Mateo’s road system for the benefit of the traveling public and the Board will be updated as the full impact of COVID-19 to these revenues can be determined.

 

County Counsel has reviewed and approved the resolution as to form.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no impact to the General Fund.  The normal cost for managing the road records annually is approximately $10,000, which is paid for from the gas tax revenue.
