$306 MILLION APPROVED TO UPGRADE TRANSPORTATION

LOS ANGELES - The California Transportation Commission today allocated $306 million to 44 projects that will help ease traffic congestion, improve safety, and support economic growth.

“From one end of the state to the other, transportation projects are providing jobs and improving roads, bridges, and transit for people and businesses in California,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

The allocations include $114 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. In total, $14.7 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been distributed statewide.

The remaining $192 million in allocations came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.

Among the projects that received funding today were:

  • $34,200,000 to replace existing asphalt pavement with concrete, and replace median barriers, signs, lighting, ramp meters and improve drainage on the San Bernardino Freeway (I-10) in Baldwin Park and West Covina.
  • $12,705,000 to improve portions of the Port of Los Angeles within the TRAPAC container terminal.
