Background
The County executed an agreement (Agreement) with the State of California, Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to provide for the maintenance of electrical facilities at the intersection of any State Highway Route and any County street/road within the County. Per the terms of the Agreement, the cost of maintaining flashing beacons, traffic signals, traffic-signal systems, safety lighting and sign lighting is the responsibility of the State, and the cost of electrical energy to operate the signal systems is the responsibility of the County.  The terms of the Agreement state that it may be amended by mutual consent of Caltrans and the County.
 
Reason for Recommendation
Transportation Division (Transportation) is in the process of constructing a traffic signal on State Route 49 at Patterson Drive as part of the Capital Improvement Program.  This new signal system needs to be added to the aforementioned Agreement with Caltrans.
 
Transportation recommends the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign the attached letter authorizing the amendment of the Agreement.  After Caltrans also signs the letter, the Agreement will be considered amended to add the traffic signal at State Route 49 at Patterson Drive to the list of signal systems covered by the Agreement.
 
Clerk of the Board Follow Up Actions
1. The Clerk will obtain the Chair's signature on two (2) originals of the letter for Agreement for Sharing Cost of State Highway Electrical Facilities Revised Exhibit "A".
