A Success Story
As federal and state transportation funds began to shrink, residents recognized the importance of not relying on federal and state dollars to implement the county’s needed transportation projects. In 1990, San Bernardino County voters passed the first ½ cent sales tax for transportation improvements: Measure I. Voters have since renewed Measure I to continue until 2040. Between 2010 and 2040, it is estimated that Measure I will generate $5.4 billion for local transportation projects.
