MEASURE “T”

MEASURE “T”

Madera County Transportation Authority (MCTA)
The Madera County Transportation Authority (MCTA) was established to administer the proceeds of Measure “T”. In 2006, Madera County voters approved Measure “T” the ½ cent sales tax for local transportation projects. Measure “T” is a twenty-year program that funds highway and road capital projects that: improve traffic safety; relieve traffic congestion; and leverage other state and federal funds. Measure “T” is projected to yield approximately $213 million for transportation projects in Madera County through 2027. The MCTA administers Measure “T” revenues through a planning and programming process, which includes an Expenditure Plan and Annual Work Program. Per Authority policy the AWP is prepared annually and serves as the annual funding authority for the Measure “T” program. The Annual Work Program recognizes funds available for projects according to the Measure “T” Investment Plan and outlines each local jurisdiction’s Annual Expenditure Plan with respect to the available funds.
