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.
