$64 MILLION IN NEW TRANSPORTATION FUNDING APPROVED
STOCKTON - Continuing the push to rebuild California’s infrastructure, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $64 million to 43 projects that will reduce traffic congestion and repair highways, local streets, and bridges.
"We are putting transportation dollars to work supporting jobs and making improvements that will benefit Californians now and for decades to come," said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.
The allocations include $42 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. In total, approximately $14.7 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been distributed statewide.
The remaining allocations ($22 million) came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.
Among the projects that received funding today were:
- San Joaquin: $10,485,000 – State Route 99 (South Stockton) Widening. This Prop. 1B project includes widening lanes from 4 to 6 lanes from just north of Arch Road to just south of State Route 4, and improve and reconstruct various interchanges to ease traffic flow.
- Mariposa: $25,000 – Mt. Bullion Cutoff Road Rehabilitation Phase 2. Reconstruct the road surface and improve the road near the town of Mariposa, from State Route 140 to just past State Route 49.
Please see the attached file for information about all projects that received allocations today.
