Caltrans completes construction on State Route 33
Stanislaus County – Caltrans today announced the completion of construction on a $2.6 million pavement resurfacing project on State Route 33 (SR-33) in Stanislaus County. The project was primarily financed ($1.8 million) by President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). This project began sooner than expected thanks to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s efforts to expedite Recovery Act funding.
“My Administration is committed to making sure that money from the Recovery Act is being pumped into California quickly and responsibly to stimulate the economy and in this instance - invest in the future of California's transportation infrastructure." said Governor Schwarzenegger.
This project resurfaced 14 miles of pavement along SR-33 in Newman from Hoyer Road/Inyo Street to Jensen Road and in Patterson from Sperry Road to Ward Avenue.
“With the help of Recovery Act funds, we are repairing our highways and local roadways at a more rapid pace and providing a smooth, safe commute for motorists,” said Caltrans Director Cindy McKim.
Under Governor Schwarzenegger’s leadership, California has obligated nearly $2.5 billion in Recovery Act funding to 946 highway, local street, and job training transportation projects statewide. For more information on the Recovery Act visit: http://recovery.ca.gov/
