Senate Bill (SB) 1 provided funding for the State Route 127 Pavement Project. SB1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually split between the state and local agencies. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly based on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1. For more information about other transportation projects funded by SB 1, visit

In addition to SB 1 funding, the California Transportation Commission allocated $20,018,000 in funding for the construction phase of the State Route 127 Pavement Project, which was provided by the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) of 2021. Under IIJA, California will receive an estimated $41.9 billion over 5 years. IIJA provides significant funding to Caltrans to improve roadways, bridges, freight projects, public transportation, and safety, and to address climate change. For more information about IIJA, visit
