What is Measure A?   Measure A Project Updates - 8.5.2014
Measure A is a transportation measure that was approved by 79% of Santa Barbara County voters in November 2008.  Measure A is administered by the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) and will provide more than $1 billion of estimated local sales tax revenues for transportation projects in Santa Barbara County over 30 years. 

Measure A will relieve traffic congestion and improve safety on Highway 101 by providing $140 million in matching funds to widen the freeway from 4 to 6 lanes south of Santa Barbara.
  The Measure A Investment Plan will also provide $455 million each for the North County and South Coast for high priority transportation projects and programs to address the current and future needs of local communities. 

In both regions, the plan provides funding for:
  > Local street improvements such as pothole repairs and  synchronized traffic signals
  > Increasing senior and disabled accessibility to public transit
  > Building safer walking and bike routes to schools
  > Providing increased opportunities for carpool and vanpool programs
