The Bay Area Council today (March 29) issued the following statement on the announcement by Governor Jerry Brown and top Legislative leaders of a 10-year, $52 billion funding package to fix California’s badly broken roads and highways. Council CEO Jim Wunderman attended the announcement with the Governor.

“In the Bay Area, we are either jammed in traffic or having our teeth rattled by pothole-infested roads and highways,” said Jim Wunderman, President and CEO of the Bay Area Council. “We need this bill.  It doesn’t just fix potholes, it has essential funds for traffic relief in our region on places like Highway 101 and 680. Our elected leaders should vote yes.”
