$138 MILLION IN NEW TRANSPORTATION FUNDING WILL UPGRADE STATE’S TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM AND DRIVE ECONOMIC GROWTH
STOCKTON – The California Transportation Commission has allocated $138 million in new funding to 32 projects that will improve highways, bridges, and passenger rail and 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:
- San Joaquin County: $8,858,000 – State Route 12 Mokelumne River Bridge Project near Isleton. The project will remove and replace the bridge concrete deck in order to improve ride quality and extend bridge service life. Crews will also reduce depths of beams, raise two end portal bracings, upgrade the wastewater system, and upgrade the control house electrical system, in order to reduce the potential of high load vehicle hits, and reduce the frequency of maintenance and bridge closures.
