Senate Bill 1

Senate Bill 1

The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017

Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, was signed into law on April 28, 2017. This legislative package invests $54 billion over the next decade to fix roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California and puts more dollars toward transit and safety. SB 1 funds will be split 50/50 between a “Fix Local Streets and Transportation Infrastructure” and a “Fix State Highways and Transportation Infrastructure” component.

See where the money is going.  Find transportation projects in your area that the State and local communities are investing in with SB 1 revenue.

Fresno COG staff is often asked about local street and road projects and the funding amounts and sources required to maintain our vast system. So, we prepared this brief video with the help of the Fresno County Transportation Authority, to begin explaining where we stand and new funding provided by SB1:
