BACKGROUND
The purchase of a Grant of Easements with EBMUD is necessary for the realignment of Sunset Road. This project realigns Sunset Road in a due east-west direction along the north side of the EBMUD Aqueduct to intersect with Brentwood Boulevard at the Grant Street signal. The project includes the construction of roadway, bridge over Marsh Creek, water and non-potable water, and fiber optic line improvements. The existing alignment of Sunset Road is inefficient and inconvenient, especially at the intersection with Highway 4 (Brentwood Boulevard).

FISCAL IMPACT
The Sunset Road Realignment Project is funding acquisition of this easement. The project will be constructed by Developer as a condition of approval, however, being offsite, it will be paid for by a combination of Roadway and Water Facility Fees. This project will increase pavement management. Annual operating and maintenance for roadway and utility work is $1,200.
