Green light for Sacramento region transportation and revenue measures

The big California transportation news to come out of midterm elections was the failure of Proposition 6, an effort to roll back recent increases in the gas tax that are projected to produce about $5 billion a year for road maintenance and other transportation projects. The proposition was defeated 55 percent to 45 percent. 

As the Sacramento Bee noted, because the proposition was retroactive to the beginning of 2017, it would have repealed Senate Bill 1, which allocated about $1 billion for Sacramento region transportation projects.

Walkways were brightly decorated with directional signs and stenciled in chalk paint along the Alhambra corridor, helping to highlight nearby amenities and destinations that could be reached through a short walk.

To launch the new Alhambra district branding a walk began at The Cannery and ended with an unveiling of the new Alhambra Mural located behind Star Ginger restaurant at 3101 Folsom Blvd.
