State transportation infrastructure will receive roughly half of new SB 1 funding. The state has already begun making critical improvements throughout California.
State Highway System Funds
SB 1 funding will be used to tackle deferred maintenance needs on the state highway system, including:
State Highway Improvements: $15 Billion
State Highway Improvements include repairing and resurfacing hundreds of miles of highways to extend the service life of California roads. Caltrans will also improve lane-line visibility and motorist safety with new striping across the state.
Fix/Replace Bridges, Culverts, Drainage: $4 Billion
Funding to fix and replace deficient bridge and repair culverts and drainage systems.
SB 1 funds will also be used to restore the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) , whose funds can be used to build new roads on California's roads and highways. Before SB 1, the CTC needed to cut and delay $1.5 billion in STIP projects due to lack of funding. These projects are now eligible to move forward.
