$1 BILLION ALLOCATED TO IMPROVE TRANSPORTATION
AND EXPAND STATE'S ECONOMY

Sacramento – Continuing the push to rebuild California’s infrastructure and spur job growth, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $1 billion to 107 transportation projects statewide, including $838 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. The remaining allocations came from assorted state and federal transportation accounts.

“From one end of the state to the other, transportation projects are providing jobs and improving mobility for people and businesses in California,” said Caltrans Director Cindy McKim.

Since its passage, $6.8 billion in Proposition 1B funding has been allocated by Caltrans and the CTC. Highlights of today’s funding allocations include: 

  • SACRAMENTO  - $65 million to construct ten miles of new High Occupancy Vehicle lanes on Interstate 80 from the Caltrans Workers Memorial Bridge to Longview Drive
  • CHICO - $25 million for the construction of 20.5 lane miles of auxiliary lanes, 4 four  new bridges, 14 modified bridges, 5,000 linear feet of new sound walls and the rehabilitation of 40.4 lane miles of existing roadway on State Route 99 between State Route 32 and East First Avenue
