Measure M, which was a 1/2 cent sales tax measure to provide funding for transportation improvements across Los Angeles County, was approved by voters in November 2016. The funds generated from Measure M are expected to fund $3.3 billion in transportation improvements in the San Gabriel Valley over the course of 40 years.


In June 2018, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) adopted Measure M Guidelines to establish a process by which subregional funds under Measure M would be programmed by the subregions' respective governing/planning entities. As a result, the SGVCOG is tasked with programming and administering the Measure M Subregional Program (MSP) funds through the development of five-year subregional fund programming plans in the San Gabriel Valley.

Notice of MSP Programming and Re-programming Request & Public Comment Opportunity

The Alameda Corridor East (ACE) Project is a SGVCOG-led effort to reduce pedestrian and cyclist fatalities and collisions at rail crossings in the San Gabriel Valley. The project is composed of several subprojects including the Montebello Corridor Grade Separation Project and the Pedestrian Crossing Improvement Project (Pomona). More information about the project can be found here:


The SGVCOG is proposing to allocate a total of $24,765,000.00 in MSP funds for this project. The funding will allow this key regional project to assess funding shortfalls and secure additional funding.  


The SGVCOG is also responsible for receiving and approving re-programming requests for previously-awarded agencies who would like to change their funding allocation years. The following re-programming requests have been received.








Stakeholders and members of the public who would like to comment on the proposed funding allocation and re-programming may attend any of the following public meetings. The public may also comment through the SGVCOG website using the Contact tab:



Note: Online access to these public meetings is available through Zoom webinar. All access links will be posted in advance of each meeting on the SGVCOG’s website:

Metro has confirmed that a total of $22,678,648.00 will be available for programming for FY 2022-2025 active transportation, bus system improvements, and first/last mile projects. On September 16, 2021, the SGVCOG Governing Board approved guidelines that would guide the funding distribution and project selection processes for FY 2022-2025 MSP projects. Given the limited funding available, the SGVCOG will prioritize regional projects to maximize regional transportation benefits. The available funding will be awarded as follows: 

  • Category 1: Planning/Design and Construction of Major Corridor Projects 

    • Approximately $15 million will be awarded to eligible corridor projects for their planning/design and construction phases. ​

  • Category 2: Planning/Design of Major Corridor Projects

    • Approximately $7 million will be awarded to eligible corridor projects' planning/design phases. Under this category, each project can apply for up to $1 million. ​

Funding application for the FY 2022-2025 was made available for cities and agencies between September 20, 2021 and October 18, 2021. Please see below for this MSP cycle's funding guidelines, funding application, application scoring rubric, and application workshop presentation: 

After reviewing the submitted applications, the SGVCOG Governing Board voted to take the following actions:

  • Awarding $15,000,000.00 for the East San Gabriel Valley Sustainable Multimodal Improvement Project in Category 1, which includes the improvements at the following locations:

    • Azusa: San Gabriel/Azusa Avenues Complete Streets and First/Last Mile Improvements ​

    • Claremont: Arrow Highway and First/Last Mile Improvements

    • Covina: Grand Avenue Conceptual Plan and Improvements and Wayfinding Signages along Grand and Glendora Avenues

    • Glendora: Glendora People Movement Project (First/Last Mile and Urban Trails), San Dimas and Little Dalton Wash Urban Trail, Glendora Avenue, and Foothill Blvd. 

    • La Verne: Pedestrian Bridge and First/Last Mile Improvements 

    • Pomona: Arrow Highway and First/Last Mile Improvements

    • San Dimas: Conceptual plans for 3 east/west connections 

  • Directing staff to work with cities and agencies that submitted applications for Category 2 to refine project scopes that can lead to improvements that would provide regional benefits to the San Gabriel Valley's active transportation, bus system, and first/last mile networks. 

On May 26, 2022, the Metro Board of Directors officially approved the $15 million to be awarded to the East San Gabriel Valley Sustainable Multimodal Improvement Project

The Governing Board also took action to program $1,000,000 of FY 2022-2025 Measure M MSP funding from the Highway Efficiency Program to the Diamond Bar Boulevard SR-60 Eastbound On-ramp Improvement Project.


After implementing a comprehensive outreach and project selection process with collaborations with the SGVCOG Transportation Committee, Public Works Technical Advisory Committee, and Planning Directors' Technical Advisory Committee, the SGVCOG awarded a total of $37,338,550 in FY 2017-2021 Measure M funds to 20 eligible active transportation, first/last mile, complete streets, highway efficiency, and bus system improvement projects in the San Gabriel Valley through the adoption of Resolution 18-63 in November 2018. The funds were then allocated for the projects’ eligible expenses between FY 2017 and FY 2021. 

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic's impacts on cities and agencies, the SGVCOG and Metro provided the opportunity for cities and agencies with awarded projects to delay the distribution of their awarded funds. In March 2021, 11 of the 20 awarded projects requested to delay the distribution of their awarded MSP funds. The SGVCOG Governing Board subsequently approved the requests through the adoption of Resolution 21-13. The requests were officially approved by the Metro Board of Directors in May 2021. Additionally, two of the awarded projects (Monrovia Active Community Travel Vinculum and Huntington Drive Bike Lanes) requested to reprogram the distribution of their awarded MSP funds in February 2022. The SGVCOG Governing Board and the Metro Board of Directors have reviewed and approved these reprogramming requests.

A list of the 20 awarded projects can be found below:

Category: Active Transportation
