California Invests Another $1.1 Billion Into the State’s Transportation Infrastructure, Includes Critical Climate Change Resiliency Funding


Sacramento — The California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $1.1 billion for projects that will repair and improve the state’s transportation infrastructure. The funding includes more than $300 million for projects across California that will make the system more climate resilient while investing in bike and pedestrian pathways and increasing natural disaster preparedness.  

Fifteen projects, totaling $309 million, are funded through the Local Transportation Climate Adaptation Program (LTCAP), which is part of Governor Gavin Newsom’s historic $15 billion clean transportation infrastructure package in the 2022-23 state budget to further the state’s ambitious climate goals. The funding will help climate-vulnerable and disadvantaged communities. 


“California is making historic transportation investments and building a climate-resilient system to connect every community in a safe and reliable way. The funding will maintain and repair our roads while investing in public transit, bike and pedestrian pathways, and climate-adaptation projects.”

Tony Tavares, Caltrans Director
The $1.1 billion allocation approved today includes $323 million from the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 (IIJA) and more than $115 million via Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.

The IIJA, also known as the “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,” is a once-in-a-generation investment in our nation's infrastructure to improve the sustainability and resiliency of our energy, water, broadband and transportation systems. Since 2021, California has received more than $32 billion in IIJA funds, including more than $24 billion for transportation-related projects. 
In addition, SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually that is shared about equally between the state and local agencies. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly based on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1.
