$347 MILLION IN NEW TRANSPORTATION FUNDING TO DRIVE ECONOMIC GROWTH AND UPGRADE STATE’S TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM
STOCKTON– The California Transportation Commission (CTC) today allocated $347 million in new funding to 47 projects that will bolster the state’s economy and provide congestion relief for motorists statewide.
The allocations include $281 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. In total, nearly $12 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been allocated by administrative agencies for statewide transportation needs.
“We’re putting people back to work building better roads, bridges, rail, and transit for California,” said Acting Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.
The remaining $66 million in allocations came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.
Highlights of the funding allocations include:
San Joaquin County: $66.2 million - widening of State Route 99 in Manteca and San Joaquin County from four to six lanes (16.6 lane miles). Project also includes replacing the Turner Overhead structure and reconstructing the French Camp Road interchange. (Phase II of the project)
Stanislaus County: $12.9 million – replacement of approximately 25 miles of existing pavement on State Route 99 from the San Joaquin County line to the Merced County line.
Amador County: $15.6 million – rehabilitate 5.5 lane miles of roadway from the San Joaquin County Line to west of State Route 124.
