Getting it Done with SB 1
Every day in California, hundreds of projects in our vast transportation network, including cities and counties, are beginning, in progress, or completed. Caltrans is proud of the work performed by staff, construction partners, and local stakeholders who deliver these projects, safely and effectively, while being good stewards of taxpayer dollars.
Before and after pictures showcasing how and where we are rebuilding California is another way to assert our commitment to accountability and transparency when it comes to how Californian’s tax dollars are spent.
