Measure X History and More Information

This page outlines road repair-related items funded by Measure X revenue to improve the condition of Oceanside roads.

In Year One, the Measure X budget included:

Improvements made with pavement overlays and slurry seals — $2,590,422

Note:  The City invests approximately $7 million annually in pavement management, however this funding level is not adequate to maintain conditions.

    • Overlay Project bids were opened 5/12/20. Approval of the Overlay Project Contract went to the City Council on 6/3/20. The project started construction in August 2020.
    • Slurry Seal Project bids were opened on 5/28/20. The contract went to City Council for approval on 6/17/20. The project began in September 2020.

    NOTE:  An additional $1,000,000 was recommended for road repairs in the Year Two Measure X Budget. This is a high priority for our community.

Rehabilitation of the South Strand due to the poor condition of the road from the ocean water flooding the area during high tides — $400,000

Note:  Rehabilitation of this road is expected to cost $3.6 million and $400,000 is for the first phase of the project.

  • The South Strand Study being done in Phase One of this project is behind schedule. Funding for Year Two will be reduced due to impacts of COVID-19 on sales tax revenues.
