SR 37 MOU to Initiate Next Phases of SR 37 Corridor Improvements

March 6, 2019

The Board approved the STA to enter into a second State Route (SR) 37 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Napa Valley Transportation Authority, the Sonoma County Transportation Authority, the Transportation Authority of Marin, the California Department of Transportation, and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission for allocation of the Regional Measure 3 funds to begin the next phase of work on SR 37. The MOU also includes the SR 37/Fairgrounds Project in Segment E which will receive $15 million in bridge toll funds to help fund construction for the project. Bridge toll funding will also be dedicated to begin the environmental process for Segment B, the two lanes segment from the Mare Island Interchange to the SR 37/121 Interchange. The first MOU was adopted in 2015, primarily to address flooding issues on SR 37 after heavy rain storms and to develop a corridor plan for future traffic improvements.
