Nearly $3.4 Billion in Transportation Projects to Be Accelerated

Sacramento, CA...Caltrans added nearly 1,200 lane miles of pavement repair and 66 bridges to its growing list of projects to be delivered sooner than planned thanks to the imminent influx of revenue from the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (SB 1), the transportation funding and reform package passed in April. To date, Caltrans has now expedited nearly $5 billion in “fix-it-first” projects since the spring.

“Years of unfunded maintenance needs have plagued our roadways, so Caltrans is expediting projects with the expectation of SB 1 funds coming in November,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty. “We are lining up projects that are going to deliver real results for all users of the state transportation system.”

This latest approval of 90 major “fix-it-first” transportation projects, worth nearly $3.4 billion, are part of a list Caltrans submitted to the California Transportation Commission (Commission) that was voted on at the Commission’s October meeting.

Improvements to be made by these projects include improving or replacing 66 bridges; rehabilitating nearly 1,200 lane miles of pavement on highways across the state; repairing more than 300 culverts and drainage systems; and installing nearly 2,400 elements that are part of traffic management systems that help manage traffic and reduce congestion.

Among the projects that received funding allocations were:

· $14.6 million traffic management systems project will install Intelligent Transportation System elements that provide traffic monitoring information on Interstate 5 from south of West Mathews Road to Monte Diablo Avenue, on State Route 4 east of Army Court to east of South Walker Lane, and on SR-99 south of East Mariposa Road to the SR-99/SR-4 Separation in San Joaquin County.

· $6.6 million bridge project will replace the Little Potato Slough Bridge on State Route 12 in San Joaquin County.

· $6.3 million traffic management systems project will install Intelligent Transportation System elements that provide traffic monitoring information on Interstate 5 near the San Joaquin River Bridge, State Route 99 at Spreckels Road and Moffat Boulevard, and on SR-120 at Guthmiller Road, McKinley Avenue and Van Ryn Avenue in San Joaquin County.

· $5.3 million traffic management systems project will replace traffic monitoring elements on Interstate 5, State Routes 4, 26, 33, 49, 59, 88, 99, 104, 108, 120, 132, 140, 152 and 205 at 27 locations in the counties of San Joaquin, Amador, Calaveras, Merced, Mariposa, Stanislaus and Tuolumne.

The projects authorized today come on the heels of more than $285 million in accelerated existing highway repair projects announced earlier in July, and nearly $901 million in “fix-it-first” projects in August.

SB 1 provides an ongoing funding increase of approximately $1.8 billion annually for the maintenance and rehabilitation of the state highway system, including $400 million specifically for bridges and culverts. SB 1 funds will enable Caltrans to fix more than 17,000 lane miles of pavement, 500 bridges and 55,000 culverts by 2027. Caltrans will also fix 7,700 traffic operating systems, like ramp meters, traffic cameras and electric highway message boards that help reduce highway congestion.

Caltrans is committed to conducting its business in a fully transparent manner and detailing its progress to the public. For complete details on SB 1, visit http://www.rebuildingca.ca.gov/.
