Sonoma County to expand road maintenance list — a bit

About 5.7 miles of road in unincorporated Sonoma County could be restored to regular long-term maintenance with a vote Tuesday by county supervisors.

The move would increase by 4 percent the current network of county roads targeted for long-term upkeep.

County officials acknowledged the gain would be marginal.

The 10 identified road segments include two miles of Bennett Valley Road outside of Santa Rosa, nearly a mile of Verano Avenue outside Sonoma and shorter stretches of main roads beyond the city limits in Rohnert Park and Petaluma.

If approved by supervisors, those segments would join the 150 miles of road already in the county's so-called "priority road network." That select list represents the only roads targeted for long-term surface maintenance out of the county's 1,387-mile network.
