Commuting in California May Just Get a Bit Easier


The California Transportation Commission allocated $138 million to 32 projects around the state at its January 29th, 2014, meeting.  As Caltrans director Malcolm Dougherty put it:

From one end of the state to the other transportation projects are providing good paying jobs while at the same time reducing traffic congestion for the people and businesses in California.

Many of the projects receiving funds are directly aimed at easing commutes.  Some highlights include:

  • $8.5 million to Metrolink for its High Speed Readiness Program
  • $11.9 million for the Raymond Avenue grade separation in Fullerton
  • $6.5 million for the Raymer to Benson Double Track Project to Ventura County line
  • $2.6 million to Transportation Agency for Monterey County for Davis Road Class II bike lanes

Other projects include bike paths, improving and replacing bridges and other roadway improvements.  A full list of projects can be found here.
