CTC Allocates Funding

$138 MILLION IN NEW TRANSPORTATION FUNDING WILL UPGRADE STATE'S TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM AND DRIVE ECONOMIC GROWTH

The California Transportation Commission has allocated $138 million in new funding to 32 projects that will improve highways, bridges and passenger rail to further strengthen the state's economy.

"From one end of the state to the other, transportation projects are providing good paying jobs while at the same time reducing traffic congestion for the people and businesses in California," said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

The allocations include approximately $25 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. To date, more than $17 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been put to work statewide for transportation purposes.

The remaining $113 million in allocations came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.

Highlights of the funding allocations include:

  • $2.6 million to the Transportation Agency for Monterey County for a Class II Bike Lane near Salinas on Davis Road from Rossi Street to Blanco Road in Monterey County.

  • $1.1 million for the construction of a median barrier and shoulder rumble strips on U.S. Highway 101 from north of Cathedral Oaks Road to south of Dos Pueblos Creek in Santa Barbara County.
