The digital annual report for Measure K, the half-cent sales tax for transportation projects in San Joaquin County, has been released.

The annual report can be found on the San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG) website at SJCOG, the planning, financing and coordinating agency for the San Joaquin region overseeing transportation, housing, habitat conservation, and other programs, is also the Local Transportation Authority and responsible for carrying out Measure K improvements and administering the program.

Visitors to the digital annual report can view a video, graphics and metrics on projects funded all or in part by the half-cent sales tax that help to relieve traffic congestion or improve highway safety throughout the region now and into the future. The annual report also contains information on regional and local transit, rail and commuter improvements, and projects that make it safer for children and others to walk and ride bicycles around schools and neighborhoods. There is also information on future projects and innovative ways for helping San Joaquin County residents to conveniently and safely get where they need to be.

Voters first approved Measure K in 1990 for 20 years. That trust was rewarded with $735 million in transportation improvements in San Joaquin County. Seeing the successes of Measure K improvements, voters in 2006 renewed the sales tax for another 30 years.

Major Measure K improvements include those to San Joaquin County freeways, streets and roads, public transit networks, pedestrian, and bicycle friendly programs. It will protect and enhance the region’s transportation system well into the future.

Measure K makes San Joaquin County a “self-help county” and Measure K funds help to leverage additional funding to deliver priority transportation projects residents depend on every day.
