$347 MILLION IN NEW TRANSPORTATION FUNDING TO DRIVE ECONOMIC GROWTH AND UPGRADE STATE’S TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM

MARYSVILLE – The California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $347 million in new funding to 47 projects that will bolster the state’s economy and provide congestion relief for motorists statewide.

The allocations include $281 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. In total, nearly $12 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been allocated by administrative agencies for statewide transportation needs.

“We’re putting people back to work building better roads, bridges, rail, and transit for California,” said Acting Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

The remaining $66 million in allocations came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.

Highlights of the funding allocations include:

  • Placer County: $1 million from the locally-administered State-Local Partnership Program to the City of Roseville to widen from two to five lanes a one-mile stretch of Fiddyment Road from Baseline Road to Pleasant Grove Boulevard.
  • El Dorado County:  $3.7 million from the State Highway Operation and Protection Program to construct water quality collection and treatment facilities west of Ski Run Boulevard to Wildwood in South Lake Tahoe.
