Where Does the Money Go?

California’s state-maintained transportation infrastructure will receive roughly half of SB 1 revenue. The other half will go to local roads, transit agencies and an expansion of the state’s growing network of pedestrian and cycle routes. Each year, this new funding will be used to tackle deferred maintenance needs both on the state highway system and the local road system, including:
