Bay Area, CA

Outcome: Win

Results: Passed, 56% - 44%

Under SB 916 of 2003, residents of seven Bay Area counties would vote in March 2004 to raise bridge tolls by $1 to spend an estimated $125 million a year for transit, planning and roads. The Bay Area's priorities include a $50 million fourth hole in the Caldecott Tunnel, $36 million to expand ferry service and $50 million for a new five-lane span for the Benicia-Martinez bridge. Funds would also strengthen Bay Area Rapid Transit underground tunnels, renovate the TransBay Terminal in San Francisco and study Bay Area access to a proposed high-speed rail system in California. The measure needs majority approval of voters in seven counties with state-owned toll bridges to pass. That includes Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara and Solano counties.
