SANTA ANA – The California Transportation Commission (CTC) has allocated more than $217 million to 72 projects, to support needed upkeep on California’s aging roads and bridges, make upgrades to transit and rail systems and encourage use of alternative forms of transportation, including biking and walking.
"Caltrans is working to ensure every dollar counts when it comes to California's transportation infrastructure. Although we must not forget that our state highway system's needs still exceed what resources are currently available, all these investments will benefit Californians now and for decades to come"
The newly allocated funding includes $130.8 million from the State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) for 23 "fix-it first" projects that will repair bumpy pavement, preserve roads that are in good condition from deteriorating and upgrade bridges to make them safer and stronger.
Other allocations include:
- $50 million for two Transit and Intercity Rail Program projects
- $22 million towards 40 Active Transportation Program projects
- $3 million for three capital improvement projects both on and off the state highway system as part of the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)
The remaining funding allocations came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.
Among the projects that received funding allocations today were:
