California Transportation Commission Green Lights $578 Million to Repair and Maintain State’s Infrastructure


Senate Bill 1 provides $317 million of funding

Sacramento — The California Transportation Commission (CTC) this week allocated $578 million for projects to repair and improve transportation infrastructure throughout the state. Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, accounts for $317 million – more than half of the funding.

“The CTC’s welcome decision to green light more than half a billion dollars to maintain and repair California’s aging transportation infrastructure is not only in keeping with our time-tested ‘fix-it-first’ strategy but also represents another big step to build and maintain a transportation system that serves all who travel in California, whether by foot, bicycle, bus, train or automobile.”
