SB 1 - The Road Repair & Accountability Act of 2017
SB 1, the Road Repair & Accountability Act of 2017
SB 1 will invest more than $80 million in Central Coast infrastructure, including highways, public transportation, and commuter rail over the next 10 years.
70-80% of Southern California roads are in poor to mediocre condition; SB 1 doubles funding for street and road repairs and maintenance.
SB 1 creates more than half a million shovel-ready jobs in construction, trades, and supplies.
Annually, our cities are estimated to receive significant investments:
- Buellton – $220,000
- Carpinteria – $600,000
- Fillmore – $710,000
- Goleta – $1,350,000
- Ojai – $350,000
- Oxnard – $9,260,000
- Santa Barbara – $3,960,000
- Santa Paula – $1,390,000
- Solvang – $250,000
- Ventura – $4,920,000
SB 1 doubles available funds for new public transit infrastructure. Each year potholes cost families approximately $760 a year in repairs, and too many hours in traffic. Left unchecked, potholes turn into sinkholes and the cost to taxpayers increase exponentially.
