$347 MILLION IN NEW TRANSPORTATION FUNDING TO DRIVE ECONOMIC GROWTH AND UPGRADE STATE’S TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM

SAN BERNADINO– 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:

  • Foothill Boulevard (Route 66) Improvement Project – $1 million has been allocated to the City of Upland. The project includes the widening of Foothill Boulevard from Monte Vista Avenue to Central Avenue which will allow the widening of Foothill Boulevard to current standards including curb, gutter, and sidewalk, raised median, nostalgic street lighting, bicycle lanes, and landscaping

Please see the attached file for more information about all projects that received allocations today.
