Uncommon allies united for a common goal: Relieve Traffic; Repair our Roads.

We are fortunate to enjoy a special quality of life here. Unfortunately, many of Santa Clara County’s roads are in dire need of repair and we’re spending too much time trapped in traffic. We need meaningful countywide congestion relief.

Measure B repairs our roads and contributes to a better quality of life throughout Santa Clara County. Join us.

REDUCE TRAFFIC

  • Relieve traffic congestion on all 10 Expressways (Almaden, Capitol, Central, Foothill, Lawrence, Montague, Page Mill, San Tomas, Santa Teresa, Hale) and key highway interchanges

INCREASE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

  • Finish the BART extension to downtown San Jose and Santa Clara
  • Protect and enhance transit options for seniors, the disabled, students and the poor
  • Increase Caltrain capacity, easing highway congestion and improving safety at grade crossings
  • Connect BART and Caltrain in downtown San Jose and Santa Clara, with platform-to-platform connections, to finally provide rapid rail around the entire Bay Area

IMPROVE ROADS & FUNDING

  • Repair roads and fix potholes in all 15 cities
  • Improve bicycle and pedestrian safety, especially near schools
  • Measure B will provide Santa Clara County a guaranteed source of locally controlled funding to repair and maintain our roads and improve safety
  • Measure B helps Santa Clara County secure state and federal matching funds, otherwise lost to other regions

We need to act now

The state or federal government cannot take away Measure B funds. The longer we wait, the more expensive these needed improvements become.

Strong taxpayer safeguards

Measure B mandates strong taxpayer safeguards, including independent financial audits with citizen oversight. Elected leaders will be held accountable to spend funds as promised.
