Regional Measure 3

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s Bay Area Toll Authority has approved a resolution to place a sweeping $4.45 billion package of congestion relief projects known as Regional Measure 3 on the June 5 ballot in all nine Bay Area counties.
 
If approved by a combined majority of all voters – including voters in Napa County - these projects would be funded by a $1 increase in tolls on the Bay Area’s seven state-owned toll bridges. The partial list of RM3 projects for Napa County includes:
  • $100 million for environmental work and near-term improvements on SR 37 to protect the highway from flooding and improve congestion.
  • $20 million for multi-modal improvements in South Napa County and along the SR 29 corridor, including the Soscol Junction project.
  • $100 million for North Bay Transit Projects such as Park and Rides and Express Bus service along State Route 29.  

The RM 3 expenditure plan was developed by the state Legislature following Gov. Jerry Brown’s signature on Senate Bill 595.
