The State of California provides funding for the streets in the City of Rio Dell. These funds come from the Gas Tax, Transportation Development Act (TDA), and beginning in 2017, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. Historically, these state funds have not kept pace with the deteriorating condition of the streets. Between 2004 and 2016, all significant pavement projects have been the result of grants from the State or Federal Governments (Proposition 1B, STIP, Safe Routes to School), including work on Wildwood Avenue. In 2017 the City conducted an asphalt rehabilitation project along Davis Street. Funding for this project was made possible through the Measure U Sales Tax. The City's latest grant award is approximately $1.6 million in Safe Routes to School monies that will go to projects primarily in the area of Wildwood Avenue and Highway 101. Construction is expected during the summer of 2020.
