Today the California Transportation Commission announced the allocation of $101 million to fund 90 state-wide transportation projects. The CTC's updated project allocation list provides a full breakdown of all the projects.
In reviewing the project list, there appears to be a big push towards going "green": many of the projects involve improvements such as tree planting, compressed natural gas (CNG) buses, pedestrian and bicycle trails, or acquisition of property for restoration and habitat protection. There's also a handful of traditional right-of-way improvement projects such as the Encinitas Grade Separation Project and the construction of an auxiliary lane in Santa Ana for the Dyer Road off-ramp to Edinger Avenue.
Caltrans' press release focused on two items: (1) the "Middle of Buckhorn" project on State Route 299 west of Redding; and (2) the approval of the first phase of the I-805 Managed Lanes North in San Diego County. Caltrans' Director, Cindy McKim, touted that "transportation projects are providing jobs and improving mobility for people and businesses in California."
