Traffic - Prop 1B
The Rebuild California Plan – Highways and Air PollutionEvery day, California drivers spend half a million hours stuck in traffic. We’re home to six of the most congested cities in the country – congestion that carries a price tag of more than $20 billion every year in wasted gasoline, time and productivity.
And, we’ve got more people driving more miles. Highway use nearly tripled between 1965 and 2000, and it’s expected to grow just as quickly in the next 25 years.
The Rebuild California Plan provides funding to fix the state’s most dangerous highways, clear freeway bottlenecks and help prevent air pollution.
Prop. 1B: Improvements now to sustain our economy and our quality of life
This key element of the Rebuild California Plan provides $20 billion to expand and repair our most dangerous and congested highways, with funds for public transit and to reduce air pollution.
Prop. 1B: Highway safety, congestion relief, public transportation and road repair
Our economy depends on a good transportation system. More than a million California jobs depend on exports and trade, and our ports handle $400 billion in goods each year – 20 percent of the nation’s total.
