Planning and Delivering Transportation Improvements in Your Community
In 2004, more than 75 percent of Sacramento County voters approved extending Measure A – the County’s half percent sales tax until 2039 – to pay for transportation projects. The proceeds of the Measure A sales tax currently fund a comprehensive transportation improvement program which has resulted in traffic relief, improved driver experience, bicycle and pedestrian safety, street maintenance, roadway improvements and expanded transit services.
In spring 2016, the Sacramento Transportation Authority approved the Measure B Transportation Sales Tax Expenditure Plan (TEP), that will be considered by voters on the November 2016 ballot. If approved by voters, Measure B would raise $3.6 billion over 30 years to repave streets, repair aging roads and bridges, and fund new highways, connector and interchange projects.
