Smoother Pavement and Safer Bridges are Coming Soon to a Road Near You

On March 20, 2014, the California Transportation Commission allocated $334 Million to 53 projects around the state.  As one Caltrans press release puts it, "Californians will be driving on smoother roads, safer bridges, and enjoying the benefits of enhanced transit."

According to Caltrans' director Malcolm Dougherty:

Every $1 spent on preventive pavement maintenance saves Californians $11 that would have been spent on future pavement repairs.

And we can all hope Caltrans is targeting those dollars in the right places.  Some areas that will be seeing significant funds include:

  • $59 Million to widen SR 138 in San Bernardino
  • $50 Million to repair pavement, improve barriers and guardrails along I-5 and I-605 in Los Angeles County
  • $48 Million to ACE for the Puente Avenue Grade Separation
  • $7 Million for pavement improvements on Highway 46 along the Central Coast
  • $3 Million on US 101 in San Luis Obispo County
  • $5.8 Million for the Horsecreek Bridge in San Bernardino County
  • $2.7 Million for improvements and upgrades to the Caldecott Tunnel
