The California Transportation Commission has voted to allocate $589 million for projects to repair and improve transportation infrastructure throughout the state. Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, accounts for $302 million – more than half of the funding.
Bay Area projects approved by the CTC late last month include:
- $18.9 million to construct a soldier pile wall and make drainage improvements along Highway 1 in Jenner, Sonoma County.
- $13.6 million to rehabilitate pavement and upgrade facilities to Americans with Disability Act Standards on U.S. Highway 101 in San Mateo County.
- $12.4 million to restore the Sonoma Creek Bridge and the Hooker Creek Bridge in Sonoma County.
- $1.6 million to rehabilitate the Irwin Creek Bridge and the adjoining culvert structures in San Rafael, Marin County.
SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually split between the state and local agencies. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly based on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1.
