California's infrastructure received another push in the right direction last week as the California Transportation Commission (CTC) allocated $152 million to 36 projects statewide -- bringing its total transportation funding for 2013 beyond the $3 billion barrier.
Some highlights of projects receiving funding this year as 2013 winds to a close:
Los Angeles received (i) $26 million to improve the Port of Los Angeles, (ii) $20 million to widen the I-5 freeway from the Orange County Line to the I-5/I-605 junction, and (iii) $28 million for the Exposition Light Rail Project between Culver City and Santa Monica.
The Bay Area received (i) $91 million in Proposition 1B funds for the Doyle Drive Replacement Project, and (ii) the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) received $140 million from Proposition 1A (the high speed rail bond).
Orange County received $47 million to add carpool lanes on I-5 in Orange County.
Stockton received $97 million for the State Route 4 Crosstown Freeway Extension.
