The California Transportation Commission (CTC) allocated more than $600 million in funding for hundreds of transportation projects, which includes $80 million from SB 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
"Caltrans will focus on repairing and rehabilitating the state highway system by improving pavement, bridges, culverts and intelligent transportation systems, which are included in the performance requirements of SB 1, to improve transportation for all of our residents and visitors, no matter their mode of transportation," said Laurie Berman, Caltrans director.
The California Transportation Commission recently approved more than $2 billion in funding for a range of transportation projects. Of those,100 are funded entirely or at least partly by $690 million from Senate Bill 1, or SB 1, also known as the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, with $1.3 billion approved for nearly 150 other transportation projects that require additional maintenance, improvements and construction.
Caltrans announced that 32 major “fix-it-first” transportation projects can be accelerated a year earlier than planned due to anticipated funding from Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. The advancement is possible due to nearly $690 million in funding authorized by the California Transportation Commission (CTC).
Continuing the push to rebuild and maintain California's infrastructure, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) has allocated $236 million to 40 transportation projects that will alleviate traffic delays, repair aging roads and bridges and encourage bicycling and walking.
