Regional Measure 3

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

On June 5th, voters in all nine Bay Area counties will decide on a sweeping $4.45 billion package of congestion relief projects known as Regional Measure 3. If approved by a combined majority of all voters, these projects would be financed by an increase in tolls on the Bay Area’s seven state-owned toll bridges. “Nobody likes higher tolls,” commented MTC Chair and Rohnert Park City Councilmember Jake Mackenzie. “But nobody likes traffic jams or crush-loaded train cars either. If our region is going to maintain its economic leadership, we have to invest in projects that will keep businesses and their workers moving."
