$253 MILLION IN NEW FUNDING WILL BOOST ECONOMIC GROWTH AND IMPROVE TRANSPORTATION
MARYSVILLE – The California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $253 million in new funding to 30 projects that will improve the state’s transportation system and strengthen California’s economic recovery.
“From one end of the state to the other, transportation projects are providing good paying jobs while at the same time reducing traffic congestion for people and businesses in California,” said Acting Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.
The allocations include $206 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. In total, nearly $12 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been allocated statewide.
The remaining $47 million in allocations came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.
Among the projects that received funding allocations today were:
- Sacramento County - $19.1 million Proposition 1B project involving the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) to widen White Rock Road from Grant Line Road to Prairie City Road from two to four lanes in Sacramento County.
- Sacramento County - $23.1 million for a project on State Route 99 at Elverta Road to construct a four lane overcrossing including a and full freeway interchange that includes ramp meters, High Occupancy Vehicle lanes and traffic signals.
Please see the attached file for more information about all projects that received allocations today.
