SB 1 SUMMARY
Butte County and its local jurisdictions stand to receive approximately
$376 million in much needed transportation funding over the ten-year term of SB 1.
SB 1 will allow the cities and the county to begin construction on a backlog of local street and road improvements for the first time in over a decade, to fix pot-holes, repave roadways and make needed safety improvements.
SB 1 will allow also BCAG and Caltrans to widen State Route 70 to four-lanes in Butte County to address recent fatalities and complete a long standing goal to connect Chico to Sacramento by a four-lane highway. This project will also have significant economic benefits for all of Butte County.
SB 1 was supported by the California League of Cities, the California State Association of Counties, and the California Association of Councils of Governments.
