$2.2 BILLION IN NEW FUNDING ALLOCATED TO TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS TO HELP DRIVE STATE’S ECONOMIC GROWTH


Stockton, CA – Continuing the push to rebuild California’s infrastructure and spur job
growth, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) has allocated $2.2 billion in
new funding to 146 highway, transit, and rail projects statewide.

The funding included $863 million from Proposition 1B, a 2006 voter-approved
transportation bond. To date, the state has allocated more than $9 billion in Proposition
1B funds.

“We are putting transportation dollars to work creating jobs and making transportation
improvements that will benefit Californians now and for decades to come,” said Acting
Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

Highlights of the funding allocations include:

Calaveras County – $131,000 for improvements to Town Hall, including the installation
of bicycle racks, 60 feet of sidewalk, handicapped ramps and a handicapped parking
space.

San Joaquin County – $1.2 million to construct left turn lanes at intersections to
reduce the number and severity of collisions, and $5.7 million to rehabilitate 18.5 miles
of pavement to improve safety and ride quality.

Stanislaus County – $72.6 million to rehabilitate 148 lane miles of roadway to improve
the ride quality and prevent further deterioration of the road surface.
