Suisun Street Improvements

Suisun Street Improvements

I’m Ed Smith, a Suisun personal injury lawyer. In order to improve safety for those using Suisun’s Roads, The Suisun City Council recently approved three years’ worth of street repair projects that will cost the city a total of around 2.3 million dollars. The project is meant to improve the safety of pedestrians and motorists who use the city’s roadways.

The Project

The large construction project was approved almost unanimously on Tuesday, September 5, 2017. The only council member with objections was Mike Segala who suggested that Whitby Way be added to the list of roads to be repaired.

Suisun City Director of Public Works Tim McSorley told the council that Whitby Way will eventually be fixed, but was not included in the initial three-year repair schedule because the street only has 23 homes on it whereas other streets have more housing and more traffic.

A Failed Proposal

A couple of months ago, the council rejected a different three-year road repair plan that recommended to begin by preserving roadways that already have a high PCI, or Pavement Condition Index, ratings which run a range from 1 to 100 with higher ratings meaning better quality roads. Members of the city council pointed out that these streets would be able to continue to serve the community while roads in worse states of disrepair were improved.

Beginning Work

The now-approved list of projects is set to spend $474,300 on road repairs around Suisun in the 2017-18 fiscal year. Construction is expected to begin in early April of 2018. The roads slated to receive cape seal treatments during 2018 were chosen based on recommendations from the Public Works Department which took into account density of residences, traffic, and interconnection with main roads.

The streets scheduled for 2018 repair are Driftwood Drive, Hilborn Court, Marston Court, Spence Court, Flagstone Court, Brookside Court, Hibiscus Lane, McNabe Court, Keys Court, BottleBrush Court, Birchwood Court, Camelia Court, Dawn Rose Court, Kinsmill Court, Dawn Rose Way, Limewood Drive, Peytonia Court, and Limewood Drive.

Additionally, Blossom Road will receive a more extensive asphalt overlay repair.


In the following year, 2019, the city will be spending $805,000 on a complete overlay repair of Village Drive. During 2020, the city will be doing overlay repairs on Mayfield Circle, Armsby Way, and Merganser Drive.

Faulty Roads and Accidents

Poor road quality and conditions contribute to thousands of injuries on U.S. roads every year. Although federal and state laws require cities and counties to build, design, and maintain safe highways and roads, it’s impossible to ensure that all roadways are safe.

Some road conditions that commonly contribute to vehicle collisions include:

  • Roads not salted in winter weather
  • Blind curves or poorly banked roads
  • Confusing, damaged, or missing signage
  • Poor landscaping
  • Overly bright lighting
  • Broken guardrails
  • Lack of traffic signals
