Measure L

Measure L is the Transportation Ordinance and Expenditure Plan approved by Stanislaus County voters on November 8, 2016. The measure raised the sales tax in Stanislaus County on April 1, 2017, by one-half cent for a total period of 25 years to improve our local streets and roads, improve connectivity and reduce congestion.

Measure L includes strong taxpayer safeguards to ensure that the projects and programs approved by the voters are funded and delivered. A Citizens Oversight Committee has been created to provide an enhanced level of accountability for expenditures made under the Plan to ensure that all voter mandates are carried out and that the financial integrity and performance of the program is maintained.

Kinshire Waterline Replacement/FDR Phase IB ProjectThis project is bounded by Sperry Avenue to the north, Poppy Avenue to the south, Del Puerto to the west, and Patterson Irrigation District’s (PID) main canal to the east.  Construction was awarded to United Pavement Maintenance, Inc., and the project is in the construction phase.

The inability to secure the necessary materials needed to complete this project has caused delays.
