The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) held a completion ceremony for the State Highway 70/Plumas Lake Interchange project Sept. 9.

The $21.8 million Plumas Lake Interchange contract was awarded in August 2007 and the project received $12.2 million in voter approved Proposition 1B funds in 2006.

“This project will relieve traffic congestion, is important to interregional commerce, and has boosted the area economy,” said Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. “When California voters approved Proposition 1B, they wanted action — and this is an example of that action.”

With major population growth in the area, the new interchange will provide residents with a safer and more convenient access to State Highway 70.

The completion ceremony took place at the intersection of Plumas Lake Boulevard and River Oaks Boulevard. Caltrans District 3 Director Jody Jones and elected local county officials joined in the celebration.

Since July 1, 2007, approximately $4 billion in Proposition 1B funding has been allocated by the California Transportation Commission and other state agencies.
