Four County Transportation Projects Receive State Funding

California Invests Another $1.1 Billion Into the State’s Transportation Infrastructure, Includes Critical Climate Change Resiliency Funding

The California Transportation Commission (CTC) has allocated $1.1 billion for projects that will repair and improve the state’s transportation infrastructure. The funding includes more than $300 million for projects across California that will make the system more climate resilient while investing in bike and pedestrian pathways and increasing natural disaster preparedness.

Fifteen projects, totaling $309 million, are funded through the Local Transportation Climate Adaptation Program (LTCAP), which is part of Governor Gavin Newsom’s historic $15 billion clean transportation infrastructure package in the 2022-23 state budget to further the state’s ambitious climate goals. The funding will help climate-vulnerable and disadvantaged communities.

“California is making historic transportation investments and building a climate-resilient system to connect every community in a safe and reliable way,” said Caltrans Director Tony Tavares. “The funding will maintain and repair our roads while investing in public transit, bike and pedestrian pathways, and climate-adaptation projects.”

The $1.1 billion allocation approved today includes $323 million from the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 (IIJA) and more than $115 million via Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.

Projects the CTC approved include:

  • $2.7 million in SB 1 funding for a project to resurface the pavement, improve drainage systems and guardrail on US 101 near Buellton from south of Santa Rosa Road to north of the Junction with Highway 154 in Santa Barbara County.
  • A $2.6 million allocation to replace a failed retaining wall south of the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge on Highway 1 near Big Sur in Monterey County.
  • $2.6 million to rehabilitate the pavement and drainage systems, reconstruct guardrail and upgrade Transportation Management Elements in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on US 101 from Santa Rosa Road to north of the State Route 154 Interchange near Buellton in Santa Barbara County.
  • A $4.2 million allocation to repair drainage systems, restore drainage systems, clear rock and debris from creeks and below bridges, repair slipouts, washouts and slides due to the January 2023 storm events near Las Cruces in Santa Barbara County.
  • $2.7 in SB 1 funding to rehabilitate culverts, install new signs and guardrail on US 101 from the Interchange with Santa Rosa Road to south of San Antonio Creek Road near Buellton in Santa Barbara County.

The LTCAP provides $400.5 million over five years, with $148 million in state funding and $252.5 million from the federal Promoting Resilient Operations for Transformative, Efficient, and Cost-Saving Transportation (PROTECT) Formula Program established in the IIJA.

The IIJA, also known as the “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,” is a once-in-a-generation investment in our nation’s infrastructure to improve the sustainability and resiliency of our energy, water, broadband and transportation systems. Since 2021, California has received more than $32 billion in IIJA funds, including more than $24 billion for transportation-related projects.

In addition, SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually that is shared about equally between the state and local agencies. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly based on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1.
