SB1 Transportation Infrastructure Projects
The League of California City's has estimated that Santa Rosa will receive a total of $2,935,933 for FY 2018-2019. The City anticipates that SB1 will generate $3.9 million in additional road maintenance funds once fully implemented. Even with this new funding, we are still left with a shortfall of approximately $10 million annually.
The City is responsible for maintaining 505 center-line miles of local streets and roads, with streets varying from two-lane (residential) streets to six-lane (arterial) streets. With an annual average maintenance budget of approximately $5.4 million dollars, Santa Rosa’s three-year average Pavement Condition Index (PCI) has steadily declined to 60, at the line between “good” and “fair” condition, with the Bay Area average PCI being 66 or “good”. Recent evaluation with our pavement management program has concluded that we should be spending at least $18 million per year just to maintain the existing pavement conditions at 60.

Statewide SB1 Funding Overview
Statewide, SB1 is expected to generate more than $5 billion annually for road repairs, to fill potholes, make seismic safety improvements to bridges and overpasses, and repair local streets and freeways. Funding in SB1 is split equally between state and local governments. SB1 also includes accountability provisions and constitutional protections, such as the creation of the Office of Inspector General, to ensure the funding is spent wisely and on transportation projects only.
California has a backlog of $130 billion in needed road maintenance projects ($57 billion in state highways; $73 billion in local streets and roads). SB1 gives us an opportunity to catch up on years of unfunded maintenance needs that have plagued our roadways.
