About SB 1

Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, was signed into law on April 28, 2017. This legislative package invests $54 billion over the next decade to fix roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California and puts more dollars toward transit and safety. These funds will be split equally between state and local investments. See where the money is going.

SB 1's investment in transportation is split equally between the state and cities and counties.

SB 1 has enabled numerous advancements to California's transportation system.
