$54.8 Million in SB1 Funding Transportation Improvements Including Local Projects

Sacramento, CA...Caltrans announced today the California Transportation Commission allocated $54.8 million for 46 projects throughout California including $31.1 million for fix-it-first projects funded by Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. This funding will allow Caltrans to repair or replace 16 bridges, 168 lane miles and 150 drainage systems statewide. In addition, 248 congestion reducing elements will be installed, including highway message signs, cameras and loop detectors to improve traffic flow. “As a new year begins, we continue our commitment to improve California’s highways, providing drivers with a smoother ride,” said Caltrans Director Laurie Berman. “SB 1 is not only allowing us to fix our highways and local roads, but it is also reducing congestion, which allows residents and visitors to get where they need to go more safely and reliably.”






Area projects allocated SB 1 funds include:

• Pavement Preservation Project on State Route 49 (SR-49) in Mariposa County:
This estimated $19.8 million project will improve approximately 35 lane miles of SR-49
from the Mariposa/Madera County line to the SR-140 junction near Mariposa. SR-49,
also known as the Golden Chain Highway, is a vital Sierra Nevada connector that
passes through 11 counties – including four (Mariposa, Tuolumne, Calaveras, and
Amador) within Caltrans District 10. The project was allocated $1.1 million.

• Drainage System Project on State Route 88 in San Joaquin and Alpine Counties:
This estimated $6.4 million project will replace 30 culverts in two stretches of SR-88 –
from East Jack Tone Road to North Tully Road in Lockeford in San Joaquin County, and
from the Caples Lake Spillway Bridge in Markleeville to Schneider Cow Camp Road
near South Lake Tahoe in Alpine County. This project was allocated $1.2 million.

The Commission also allocated more than $13.7 million for 21 Active Transportation projects. Of
these,13 received approximately $6.7 million in SB 1 funding to improve sidewalks and bicycle
lanes, and provide safer routes to school for children who ride their bicycles or walk to school.

Since SB 1 was signed into law in April 2017, Caltrans has repaired or
replaced 71 bridges, paved more than 1,300 lane miles, and increased visibility for drivers by
adding highly reflective six-inch striping to more than 7,000 lane miles throughout California.
To date, Caltrans has completed 90 fix-it-first projects and begun work on nearly 400 additional
projects.

You can find the complete list of State Highway Operations and Protection Program (SHOPP)
projects that were allocated funds at the January meeting at
http://catc.ca.gov/meetings/2019/2019-01/Yellows/Revised_Complete_Book(697).pdf. SHOPP
is the state highway system’s "fix-it-first" program that funds safety improvements, emergency
repairs, highway preservation and operational highway improvements. A significant portion of
the funding for this program comes from SB 1.
SB 1, the landmark transportation infrastructure bill invests $5.4 billion per year to fix roads,
freeways and bridges in communities across California and puts more dollars toward transit.
These funds are split equally between state and local investments and will allow Caltrans to fix
more than 17,000 lane miles of pavement, 500 bridges and 55,000 culverts by 2027.
More information and updates on projects can be found on Caltrans’ social media
http://www.dot.ca.gov/paffairs/social-media.html.
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/.

    Trump should ask Caltrans for money to build his wall, or Mexico.
