How will Measure G funds be used?

Answer

Funds from Measure G will be used to:

  • Route 25: Average daily traffic at the San Benito/Santa Clara County line has more than doubled since the mid 1990s. We have made significant improvements, but we need four lanes. A four lane expressway and safer intersections on Route 25 will reduce traffic congestion and increase safety.
  • Maintain Local Streets and Roads: San Benito County roads are crumbling under the weight of decades of underinvestment due to funding deficiencies. Our region is one of seven counties in the state to have an average pavement condition of 46, well below “at risk,” and significantly worse than the statewide average. Well maintained streets and roads will improve safety and traffic flow on local roads.
  • Repair potholes.
  • Increase pedestrian and bike safety.
  • Protect and enhance bus and paratransit services for seniors, people with disabilities, and youth.
