CTC Approves Nearly $1 Billion in Funding Local Transportation Projects


The California Transportation Commission (CTC) recently announced the award of $878 million to fund 114 transportation projects.  Brian Kelly, the acting Secretary of Business, Transportation & Housing Agency, stated:

This billion-dollar investment helps preserve California’s great infrastructure of the past and put thousands of Californian’s to work building something new.  These investments in preservation and innovation are absolutely critical to California’s economy:  In 2010, traffic congestion caused 95 million hours of delay, wasting fuel and squandering productive, economic activity.

Highlights of the funding allocations include:

  • City of Riverside/Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) – construction of a four lane grade separation for railroad lines at Riverside Avenue ($12.1 million – Prop 1B/TCIF funds).
  • City of Highland/San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) – construction of a new bridge across the Santa Ana River, and re-alignment of half-a-mile of Greenspot Road with bike lanes and turn lanes ($1 million – Prop 1B/local funds).
  • City of Moreno Valley/Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) – construction of a third lane widening in Moreno Valley from Interstate 215 near Veterans Way ($560,000 – Prop 1B/local funds).
  • City of Montclair/San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) –
    widening of Monte Vista Avenue in Montclair, including utility relocations and sidewalk, curb and gutter installation ($180,000 – Prop 1B/local funds).
  • City of Palm Desert/Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) –
    modify the I-10/Monterey Avenue interchange ramp in Palm Desert ($2.8 million – Prop 1B/local funds).
