WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING?
Cities, counties and transit agencies will share an even split of SB 1 funding ($26 billion) to improve local streets and roads, expand the state’s growing network of pedestrian and cycle routes, and increase transit service.
Over 4,000 local projects receiving SB 1 funds
Without SB 1, local communities would have paid $20 billion more to bring their roads into a state of good repair
$5 Billion to improve local transportation infrastructure
Provides $200 million in matching funds to local entities who are already making their own extra investment in transportation
LOCAL STREETS AND ROADS PROGRAM: $1.5 BILLION
Addresses years of unfunded road maintenance, rehabilitation and critical safety projects. Invests in "Complete Streets" projects uniquely tailored to the needs, preferences and functions of the people who live there.
Project Name: 2019 Street Resurfacing
City, County: Hillsborough, San Mateo County
Agency: Town of Hillsborough
Project Description: The "2019 Street Resurfacing" project will repair approximately 53 miles of local roads in Hillsborough, San Mateo County, that were inspected and rated by condition in the fall of 2016. The project will reduce congestion and increase safety by eliminating the need for motorists to slow, swerve, or even stop suddenly to avoid road hazards. SB 1 will be paired with local investments to combat the rapid deterioration caused by severe winter storms and lack of funding. Rubberized asphalt concrete (RAC) will be used where appropriate to help reduce landfill by recycling disposed tires. An additional RAC benefit to the community is smoother and quieter roadways than conventional asphalt for those who enjoy outdoor activities like running and cycling.
Project Name: Manning Ave - Frankwood to Columbia
City, County: Reedley, Fresno County
Project Description: Manning Avenue is classified as a major arterial street for the city of Reedley, in Fresno County. In March 2017, a Pavement Management Plan classified the road condition as poor between North Frankwood and Columbia Avenues, and in dire need of maintenance or rehabilitation. SB 1 will invest supplemental funds toward the multi-year repair and maintenance project that will repair cracks, re-seal the road, and completely re-stripe the surface.

STATE-LOCAL PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM: $200 MILLION ANNUALLY
- Supports the investment that local communities have made in their region through voter-approved transportation tax measures through matching funds.
- Projects will include road maintenance and rehabilitation purposes and other transportation infrastructure improvements.
- Funds are allocated by the California Transportation Commission (CTC) with 50% available by formula and 50% available on a competitive basis, to ensure smaller jurisdictions are able to compete.
In January 2018, the CTC approved 57 Local Partnership Program projects including:
I-5 Improvement Project from State Route 73 to Oso Parkway in Orange County: $18.24 million
Extending from the cities of Laguna Niguel, Mission Viejo and Laguna Hills, this project adds one general purpose lane in each direction, auxiliary lanes where needed, as well as the reconstruction of interchanges at Avery Parkway. This project will directly enhance mobility and maximize the productivity of the local transportation system.
City of Corona-Temescal Canyon Road Gap Closure in Riverside County: $7.3 million
Project will widen Temescal Canyon Road from two to four lanes including but not limited to curb and gutter and curb ramps in two different segments.
Green Line Extension in Los Angeles County: $19.75 million
Project will continue environmental study and preliminary engineering of a light rail transit line extension from the city of Redondo Beach to the city of Torrance. The project would provide direct connections to regional destinations, improving accessibility to alternate modes of transportation for residents and communities in the South Bay area.
City of Clovis-Willow Avenue Street Improvements Project in Fresno County: $1.04 million for Right of Way and $3.5 million for construction.
This project will entail a large reconstruction of Willow Avenue from Shepherd to Copper Avenues. Work includes constructing additional lanes, median landscape and irrigation, concrete curbs and gutters, sidewalk, traffic signal, striping and signage.
The competitive program will be awarded at the May CTC meeting.

STATE TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM REGIONAL SHARE: $82.5 MILLION
SB 1 funds will be used to restore the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). Projects funded by the STIP include future state highway, intercity rail and transit improvements throughout California, including new capacity projects.
Prior to SB 1, the California Transportation Commission had to cut and delay $1.5 billion in projects from STIP. The funds are divided into two broad programs: the regional component, which goes to Metropolitan Planning Organizations and Regional Transportation Planning Agencies, comprising 75 percent of the funds and the interregional component, improving highways between cities, comprising the remaining 25 percent.
The California Transportation Commission is expected to adopt the STIP on March 21-22, 2018.

LOCAL PLANNING GRANTS: $25 MILLION ANNUALLY
These grants are intended to strengthen the economy, promote equity and protect the environment.
Funding: Competitive Grants
SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY GRANTS
Sustainable Communities grants are intended for regional multimodal transportation and land use planning projects which support regional sustainable community strategies and help achieve California's greenhouse gas reduction targets. Grants are awarded both competitively and by formula to eligible projects.
In December, the California Transportation Commission approved the award of both the competitive and formula grant portions of the program:
- FY 2017-18 SB 1 Sustainable Communities Grants Award List - December 15, 2017
- FY 2017-18 SB 1 Sustainable Communities Formula Grants Awards List - December 8, 2017
ADAPTATION PLANNING GRANTS: $20 MILLION TOTAL, OVER THREE YEARS
These grants will help local and regional agencies conduct adaptation planning in a way to ensure transportation assets are resilient in the face of climate change and extreme weather events. SB 1 will provide a total of $20 million over three years for this grant program.
In December 2107, the California Transportation Commission approved $7 million in grants for 21 projects throughout the state:
