CALIFORNIA TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION APPROVES BILLION-DOLLAR INFUSION OF FUNDING TO UPGRADE TRANSPORTATION AND PROMOTE JOBS
MARYSVILLE – Continuing the drive to rebuild the state’s infrastructure, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $1 billion in funding for 153 transportation projects that will strengthen the state’s economy by sustaining and creating jobs while providing congestion relief for motorists statewide.
“We’re building transportation improvements that will benefit the state for decades to come and boost job growth in every region of California,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.
The allocations include nearly $541 million from Proposition 1B, a 2006 voter-approved transportation bond. In total, more than $15.5 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been put to work statewide.
Highlights of the funding allocations include:
- West Sacramento: $37.97 million to replace bridge deck concrete on a section of U.S. Highway 50 near the Sacramento River.
- City of Roseville: $1 million to widen Blue Oaks Boulevard from four to six lanes between Crocker Ranch Road and the Industrial Boulevard overcrossing and upgrade bus stops and bicycle lanes.
- Colusa County: $2 million to repave 4.6 miles of State Highway 20 from east of the Colusa Basin Bridge to Sioc Street.
- Placer County: $1 million to the Kings Beach Core Improvement Project to construct one mile of pedestrian/bicycle and water quality improvements along Highway 28 from Highway 267 to Chipmunk Avenue.
