What is Measure B?
This November, Sacramento county residents will have the opportunity to consider Measure B, which if approved by 2/3 of voters, will enact a county-wide half-cent sales tax that would raise approximately $120 million annually in funding dedicated to capital operations and maintenance for roads, freeways and public transit.
The Measure B Transportation Expenditure Plan (TEP), which outlines how funds will be allocated for all modes of transportation throughout the County, resulted from a multi-year process that involved input from city and county engineers, planning staff and members of the community.
Measure B prioritizes fix-it-first investments to address transportation maintenance and rehabilitation projects. It would supplement the County’s existing Measure A program.
If passed, how will Measure B impact the City of Sacramento?
Measure B will help the City of Sacramento attract and secure matching state and federal funds and will provide revenue for improvement projects. Transportation projects that the City of Sacramento could pursue with Measure B funds include a new American River bridge that will serve all modes of transportation, a Capital City freeway congestion relief project, separated bikeways in downtown Sacramento, implementation of projects listed in the City’s Bicycle Master Plan, and other road and public transit enhancements over the next 30 years.
Below are some of the additional transportation improvement projects that the City of Sacramento could pursue if voters approve Measure B in November.
