(SB1) Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Program

SB1 Web Site imageSB 1 OVERVIEW 

SB 1 is a landmark transportation investment to rebuild California by fixing neighborhood streets, freeways and bridges in communities across California and targeting funds toward transit and congested trade and commute corridor improvements. SB 1 is a job creator, the White House Council of Economic Advisors found that every $1 billion invested in transportation infrastructure supports 13,000 jobs a year. SB 1 is putting people to work rebuilding California.

SB 1 invests $5.4 billion annually over the next decade to fix California’s transportation system. It will address a backlog of repairs and upgrades, while ensuring a cleaner and more sustainable travel network for the future.


SB 1 funds will be protected under a constitutional amendment (ACA 5) which safeguards new dollars for transportation use only. ACA 5 will be on the ballot for voter approval in June 2018.


The 2016 California Statewide Local Streets and Roads Needs Assessment found that the condition of local streets and roads on average was “at risk” meaning that without an infusion of new funding, the infrastructure was on its way to failure.

California roads continue to rank in the top 10 worst in the country. For too long we’ve underinvested in our transportation network and SB 1 helps ensure Californians are driving on safe roads.

  • SB 1 gives cities an opportunity to catch up on years of unfunded maintenance needs that have plagued our roadways and cost drivers for years.
  • California’s roadways wear significantly due to high traffic, lots of heavy freight, weather, and aging, so our focus is on maintenance and rehabilitation of the existing system that will provide Californians with a transportation system that is safe, sustainable and efficient.
  • SB 1 enables Anaheim to address significant maintenance, rehabilitation and safety needs on the local street and road system.
  • Californians currently pay $739 per year in additional vehicle repair costs because of the poor condition of our roads.
  • SB1 will generate more than $50 billion over the next decade, split between state and local roads, highways, and transit systems.
  • SB 1 will result in nearly $183 billion in economic activity and driver benefits throughout California.
  • Investing in our infrastructure means safer roads for California drivers and tens of thousands of good paying jobs fixing our roads.
    • SB 1 will create or support over 680,000 jobs in over 10 years, resulting in $33 billion in additional earnings over 10 years.
  • Total user benefits of SB 1 will average $3.8 billion per year in savings for California drivers, transit riders and businesses—an annual savings of nearly $300 per California household.
  • Better roads mean safer roads, adding up to $584 million in additional safety benefits, including reduced costs from highway crashes, fatalities and property damage.
