Measure D and SB1
This page contains information about Measure D and SB-1.
In April 2017, the State passed Senate Bill 1 (SB1), also known as the Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Act (RMRA), which is providing a much needed new funding source for County roads. Due to the extreme amount of storm damage our county roads received in the winters of 2016/2017 and 2022/2023 this funding is currently being used as a local match to state and federal disaster relief funding for roadway storm damage repair sites. Once we have repaired our roads from storm damage the SB1 funding will likely be used to supplement resurfacing and other road projects, however, we don’t anticipate being able to use the SB1 funds for resurfacing for some time. Lists and maps of current approved SB-1 (RMRA) projects can be found at the links below.
In November 2016, Santa Cruz County voters passed Measure D, a one-half cent sales tax that funds transportation projects for a 30 year period. Smaller neighborhood and local access roads are our current priority for use of Measure D funds, our long term goal is to eventually resurface all rural/local roads. The current Board Approved 5 year Plan of Measure D work and information on current projects can be found at the links below.
