Type: Hearing Status: Filed

On agenda: Final action: 2/10/2014
Enactment date: Enactment #:
Title: Hearing directed to the Department of Public Works, Municipal Transportation Agency (MTA), Public Utilities Commission, and Pacific Gas and Electric Company to explore a number of issues, including where projects are occurring, including sewer, water, natural gas, and road resurfacing, and what the benefits of these infrastructure improvements are; how the projects are coordinated to comply with the City's mandate that once a road is resurfaced no work will be done for five years -- absent an emergency -- to minimize repetitive street disruption; why some blocks remain under construction for very extended periods of time, with on-again-off-again work and repetitive digging; how blocks are chosen in terms of scheduling work; how many blocks are worked on annually and what the future schedule looks like; how departments are minimizing disruptions to the public caused by road work (parking, traffic detours, noise, dust, etc.); how contractors are held accountable for completing work in a timely manner, complying with contractual requirements, delivering high quality work, and minimizing impacts on surrounding neighbors; why some blocks, after undergoing utility work, only get paved on one side of the street and what we can do to prevent this; why it takes so long for MTA to re-stripe repaved roads, often months after the repaving is complete; how the various projects are funded and what the cost is per block; and what our goals are for improving pavement conditions.
