$64 MILLION IN NEW TRANSPORTATION FUNDING APPROVED
OAKLAND - Continuing the push to rebuild California’s infrastructure, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $64 million to 43 projects that will reduce traffic congestion and repair highways, local streets, and bridges.
"We are putting transportation dollars to work supporting jobs and making improvements that will benefit Californians now and for decades to come," said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.
The allocations include $42 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. In total, approximately $14.7 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been distributed statewide.
The remaining allocations ($22 million) came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.
Among the projects that received funding today were:
- Foster City – $508,000 investment in several streets that will be resurfaced
- Marin County - $45,000 investment to construct the Miller Creek Class II Bike Lanes and Pedestrian Improvements
Please see the attached file for information about all projects that received allocations today.
