The California Transportation Commission invested approximately $2 billion into transportation infrastructure across the state

This week, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) invested approximately $2 billion into transportation infrastructure across the state while an additional $2.3 billion was approved for future projects.

The approximately $2 billion in funding reflects more than $571 million in funding from the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and more than $257 million in funding from Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.

The $2.3 billion is comprised of $1.75 billion representing the third funding cycle of programs established by SB 1 and $540 million in active transportation projects sponsored by local metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs).

“SB 1 and IIJA funding are helping rebuild and transform California’s transportation future, and we are putting that investment to work to create a system that allows all of us to travel in an equitable, safe and sustainable way,” said Caltrans Director Tony Tavares.

The additional $1.7 billion for future investments cover three SB 1 grant programs: $1.1 billion for the Trade Corridor Enhancement Program (TCEP); $507.4 million for the Solutions for Congested Corridors Program (SCCP); and $142.4 million for the Local Partnership Program (LPP).

Funding from TCEP will go to 26 projects that will improve infrastructure on corridors that carry a high volume of freight traffic. Funding from the SCCP will support 10 projects that will help transportation, environmental, and community access improvements to reduce congestion throughout the state. Funding from the LPP will go to 11 projects that support counties, cities, districts, and regional transportation agencies where voters have approved fees or taxes dedicated solely to transportation.
