$306 MILLION APPROVED TO UPGRADE TRANSPORTATION

Irvine - The California Transportation Commission today allocated $306 million to 44 projects that will help ease traffic congestion, improve safety, and support economic growth.

“From one end of the state to the other, transportation projects are providing jobs and improving roads, bridges, and transit for people and businesses in California,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

The allocations include $114 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. In total, $14.7 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been distributed statewide.

The remaining $192 million in allocations came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.

Among the projects that received funding today were:

  • $1.1 million to replace curb, gutter, sidewalk, and curb ramps in the City of Huntington Beach on Goldenwest Avenue from Pacific Coast Highway to Yorktown Avenue and on Garfield Avenue from Magnolia Street to Bushard Street.
  • $950,000 to construct a maintenance vehicle pullout and access road in the City of Irvine from San Diego Creek to Von Karman Avenue.

Please see the attached file for information about all projects that received allocations
