Street Rehabilitation Projects on the horizon
The City is gearing up for several street rehabilitation projects next fiscal year that are designed to extend the life of Aliso Viejo streets. The City is proactive with ensuring streets are maintained through funding generated by gas tax and OCTA Measure M2 sales tax rather than our General Fund. This past fall Californians began paying an additional gas tax through what is known as SB 1. These are much-needed funds that will allow us to continue preventive maintenance projects such as the annual slurry seal program as well improve aging streets with asphalt overlay projects. Gas tax funds are also used for everyday street maintenance and sweeping, traffic signal maintenance, and electricity for street lights.
Starting in July 2018, the City will conduct an overlay project on Aliso Creek Road from SR-73 north to Aliso Viejo Parkway. Later in the year, we will complete our first residential street overlay project in the Glenwood Terrace area. We will also restart our annual slurry seal program, which was suspended for a year due to funding constraints. In future years, it is our goal to complete at least one overlay project with the annual slurry seal.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during our rehabilitation projects. For more information, contact the Public Works Department at 949-425-2530 or
