Home  ► About Us  ►  Funding

CCTA is responsible for ensuring the completion of a wide variety of projects that were included in the original Measure C Expenditure Plan and the Measure J Expenditure Plan. Some major projects, primarily on state highways, are being developed directly by CCTA. Others are administered by cities, the county or transit districts with funds provided by CCTA.

A Strategic Plan is prepared approximately every two years and programs funds to individual projects in specific years over the upcoming five to seven year period. For projects that have local proponents (city, county, transit districts or other special districts), CCTA enters into cooperative agreements, approves fund appropriation resolutions and reimburses project proponents upon satisfactory billing for conduct of the particular phase of work.

For projects on the State Highway System, CCTA works cooperatively with Caltrans by retaining consultants and managing single or multiple phases of the work.

CCTA reviews progress on projects funded by Measure C and/or Measure J through a program management system and Quarterly Project Status Reports.

Measure C Legacy

Measure C, Contra Costa County’s transportation sales tax measure, passed in 1988. It provided for a half-cent on the dollar sales tax for twenty years (through March 2009), to pay for an ambitious list of transportation projects and programs included in a voter-approved Expenditure Plan (as amended). The measure was estimated to generate $1 billion over 20 years for a BART extension, freeway improvements, better bus service, enhanced bicycle facilities and more transportation options for senior citizens and people with disabilities.

Measure C also included a provision unique among other sales tax measures throughout the state – a program to link planning for growth and development with transportation. CCTA was formed to manage this billion-dollar public investment, oversee the design and construction of new projects, and carry out what would be the county’s first Growth Management Program (GMP).

Over the past 20 years, the Authority has:

  • Extended BART to North Concord/Martinez and Pittsburg/Bay Point
  • Widened segments of State Route 4 East
  • Reconfigured western State Route 4 West for safety reasons and to increase capacity
  • Connected the Richmond Parkway with I-80 and the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge
  • Provided nearly $200 million to agencies for maintenance and improvements to local streets and roads
  • Created a $32 million expansion of transit service for seniors and people with disabilities
  • Provided over $33 million in bus transit enhancements

In addition, the GMP has fostered a spirit of cooperation among the cities and county in terms of working through issues related to new development and transportation.

For more information on Measure C, please visit our Measure C Library Page.

Measure J Legacy

In November 2004, Contra Costa County voters approved Measure J with a 71% vote. The measure provided for the continuation of our county’s half-cent transportation sales tax for 25 more years beyond the original expiration date of 2009. As with Measure C (the original 1988 transportation sales tax measure), the tax revenues will be used to fund a voter-approved Expenditure Plan of transportation programs and projects. The renewal of the tax means that many major improvements in our transportation system will become a reality, and some key projects can be undertaken sooner than originally planned.

Measure J will provide approximately $2.5 billion for countywide and local transportation projects and programs through the year 2034. CCTA worked for over two years, along with local governments, organizations, and residents to develop the Expenditure Plan, which specifies how the funds will be spent. The Plan received the support of every Contra Costa city and town as well as the County Board of Supervisors.

Some Plan highlights include:

  • I-680 Carpool Lane Gap Closure/Transit Corridor Improvements
  • $360 million for Local Streets and Roads Maintenance and Improvement
  • eBART – East Contra Costa Rail Extension
  • A new 4th Bore for the Caldecott Tunnel
  • State Route 4 East Widening
  • $123 million for Transit for Seniors and People with Disabilities
  • Revising the Growth Management Program (GMP) to encourage more housing in some communities
  • Requirement that all Contra Costa County cities, towns and the Board of Supervisors approve an Urban Limit Line

For more information on Measure J projects including financial plans, please visit our Measure J Library page.

CCTA believes that the future success of Contra Costa County lies in our ability to ensure safe, reliable mobility for all.  On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) Board unanimously adopted a transformative plan to move forward on that goal over the next 30 years. The proposed Transportation Expenditure Plan (TEP) is the culmination of months of extensive public outreach, stakeholder engagement, and advocate input. The plan focuses on innovative strategies and new technologies to promote a strong economy, protect the environment, and enhance the quality of life for all of Contra Costa’s diverse communities.

The proposed plan contains unprecedented funding for new technologies and for bicycle and pedestrian improvements in every part of the county. It commits substantial funding to improve BART service, increase access to BART stations, and add new BART cars. It also significantly increases direct funding to local municipalities to maintain and repair local streets and roads. At the May 18th CCTA Authority Board meeting, advocates for local businesses, the environment, and disabled communities spoke in support of the plan and thanked the Board for their leadership and inclusiveness in its development.

The video below highlights how this transformative 30-year Transportation Expenditure Plan could improve transportation throughout Contra Costa County and each of its 19 cities and towns.

The TEP is supported by each of Contra Costa County’s 19 cities and towns. Every city and town in the county has reviewed and voted to approve the draft plan prior to a final plan being adopted by the CCTA Board. Learn more about what improvements the TEP would bring to each of Contra Costa’s cities and towns in the fact sheets below.
