The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday agreed to add about 42 miles of roads to the county’s list of priority roads that will receive enough maintenance to keep them in good shape. That’s on top of the 155.9 miles of roads that the board made a priority last year.

That’s a total of 198 miles out of the 1,382.8 miles that the county is responsible for. There’s also 20.8 miles of roads that the county roads department wants the board to add to the priority list, but there’s not enough funds for that now.

All this means that the remaining 1,164 miles of county roads will get only basic maintenance.

In a report to the board, the roads department said, “The majority of these roads are in a failed condition requiring costly reconstruction repair. These roads will continue to deteriorate and will become increasingly more difficult and costly to keep safe. Without funding for rebuilding these roads, they will eventually deteriorate to a point in which it would be safer and less costly to pulverize and maintain in an unpaved condition.”
