CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 14

Meeting Date: April 26, 2005

Subject/Title: Approve a resolution authorizing submittal of a grant proposal to the Hazard Elimination Safety Program (HES) for funding in the amount of $222,008 for the Signal Modifications and Upgrades Project, CIP 336-3132 (Applewood Common at SR4 [Brentwood Boulevard])

Prepared by: Finance: Karen Wahl, Grants Administrator

Submitted by: Engineering: Bailey Grewal, City Engineer

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a submittal of a grant proposal to the Caltrans Hazard Elimination Safety Program (HES) for funding in the amount of $222,008 for the Signal Modifications and Upgrades Project, CIP 336-3132 (Applewood Common at SR4 [Brentwood Boulevard]), committing the necessary local match for the project and stating the assurance of the City of Brentwood to complete the project.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On November 28, 1995, the City Council approved a resolution authorizing the submittal of a grant proposal to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) for the Intermodal Surface Transportation and Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA); funding was awarded in FY 1997/98.

BACKGROUND
The Transportation Efficiency Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) of 1998 requires that ten percent of the apportioned Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds be made available for safety programs as defined by Section 152 - Hazard Elimination Program of Title 23, United States Code. The Hazard Elimination Safety Program (HES) is a federal safety program that provides funds for safety improvements on any public road, highway, or other public surface transportation facility. These funds serve to eliminate or reduce the number and/or severity of traffic accidents at locations selected for improvement.

For a project to be eligible for HES funds, a specific safety problem must be identified for correction and the selected project must correct or substantially improve the condition. The Engineering Department has selected modification of the traffic signal at the intersection of Applewood Common and Brentwood Boulevard as a candidate project for HES funds. The modified signal and restriping will provide an additional travel lane across the intersection for traffic thus eliminating the need to immediately merge.

FISCAL IMPACT
The estimated cost of the signal modification project is $246,675. The grant proposal will request $222,008 from the Hazard Elimination Safety Program and the remainder, $24,667 will be the responsibility of the City as matching funds which are available from Roadway Facility Fees designated for this project in the FY 2004/05 – 2008/09 Capital Improvement Program Budget.
