"Measure K is a critical funding source for upgrading San Joaquin’s roadway and public transit systems.

The infrastructure solutions from the Measure K Program help businesses and communities thrive throughout the region."
SJCOG Vice Board Chair, Councilmember Jesús Andrade, City of Stockton

Councilmember Walt Murken, City of Escalon
"I wanted to recognize the community at large who have supported the projects we have in the County. With Measure K, I think every year we improve the transportation system in San Joaquin County which is certainly one of my top priorities."
Supervisor Chuck Winn, San Joaquin County
"The San Joaquin voters approved Measure K funding to make a difference on the freeways, streets, and public transit system.

This innovative interchange is unique in the way it shifts traffic to the left side of the road, before its shifted back to the right. When constructed, City of Manteca --with the help of Measure K--will relieve congestion and enhance safety to those traveling on the new SR 120/Union Road interchange for many, many years to come."

"San Joaquin County applies its Measure K funds to fix or improve local streets, roads, and regional arterials that benefit County residents.

This is a widening project to facilitate goods movement, economic development, transportation safety, and capacity improvements."
Supervisor Bob Elliot, San Joaquin County
"San Joaquin County’s balanced and sustainable transportation system would not have been possible without the support and vision of the San Joaquin voters who passed Measure K.

Measure K makes the differences our public demands; one half cent at a time."
Vice Mayor Dan Wright, City of Stockton
"Measure K works in collaboration with federal funding to advance state and local transportation goals strengthening the Caltrans and SJCOG team’s ability to serve communities."

Measure K is a major source of funding for the San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) and helps RTD achieve its mission of providing a save, reliable, and efficient transportation system for our region. Measure K funding contributed to the construction of RTD’s Regional Transportation Center, a state-of-the-art facility that consolidates all of RTD’s operations and maintenance services. In addition, Measure K has provided the required local match to federal funds for RTD’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system which increased transit service efficiency and reliability in Stockton. RTD was the first transit agency in the state to deploy an all battery-electric BRT routes and Measure K provided the additional resources needed to fully fund the service.
Director Gary Giovanetti, San Joaquin Regional Rail District
"Measure K supports the local economy by facilitating infrastructure projects that help goods movement and job growth."
