FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

California Invests $1.4 Billion for Transportation Improvements

SB 1 provides $884 million of funding

 

SACRAMENTO — The California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated more than $1.4 billion for projects to repair and improve transportation infrastructure throughout the state. Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, accounts for more than half of this investment – $884 million.

 

“California continues to make significant investments in fixing our roads, highways, bridges and transit systems,” said Caltrans Director Toks Omishakin. “SB 1 is critical to making these repairs and upgrades, while also supporting thousands of jobs that are essential for our economy.”

 

Projects approved today include:

 

  • Bridge Replacement Project on State Route 162 in Glenn County: $110.9 million bridge project will replace the Sacramento River Bridge (No. 11-0017) and viaduct approach to current standards, and reconstruct the east side roadway to conform with the new structure on SR-162 from SR-45 to east of McDougall Street near Butte City. The project was allocated almost $98.5 million, including almost $11.3 million in SB 1 funds.

 

  • Pavement Project on Interstate 80 in Nevada County: $25.7 million pavement project will improve safety and ride quality by constructing auxiliary lane, upgrading Transportation Management System (TMS) elements, repairing drainage systems, upgrading facilities to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, and repairing 2.3-lane miles of roadway by grinding and placing Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) on I-80 from west of Donner Park Overcrossing to the SR-89/267 Separation in Truckee. The project was allocated more than $22.8 million, including more than $1.9 million in SB 1 funds.

 

  • Traffic Management Project on State Route 99 in Sacramento County: $13.9 million traffic management project to improve communication performance for the Regional Transportation Management Center. Crews will install 14 miles of cable to improve the fiber optic communication system along SR-99 from Grant Line Road in Elk Grove to U.S. Highway 50, and on SR-51 from US-50 to south of the Fort Sutter Viaduct in Sacramento. The project was allocated $12.1 million, including almost $1.4 million in SB 1 funds.

 

  • Bridge Project on State Route 70 in Yuba County: $12.2 million project to upgrade bridge rails and construct median concrete barrier on SR-70 at Feather River Boulevard Undercrossing and at South Marysville Undercrossing near Marysville. The project was allocated $9.7 million in SB 1 funding.

 

See the attached document for more projects that were allocated funds.

 

SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually split between the state and local agencies. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly based on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1.
