As reported in Caltrans District 11's press release, there is much good news coming out of California Transportation Commission's meeting last week.  First, thanks to a new state budget that increased transportation funding by $351 million, CTC revised its budget for SHOPP projects to $2.4 billion.

Local projects also received good news with CTC's award of $510 Million to 83 transportation projects around the state.  As reported by Progressive Railroading, several rail projects received significant funding, which will hopefully allow those projects to proceed to construction in short order.  Many other projects focused on rehabilitating the roadways and upgrading existing facilities. 

Some projects receiving awards include:

  • $71 Million to the Alameda Corridor-East Construction Authority for its Fairway Grade Separation project
  • $6.8 Million for the US 50 / Folsom Blvd. bypass in Sacramento County
  • $49 Million for additional HOV lanes in Orange County
  • $12.2 Million for the Tehachapi Trade Corridor Rail Improvement Project
  • $5.7 Million for Navy Drive/BNSF underpass in Stockton
  • $9 Million for various biking and pedestrian projects
