Here’s more good news for transportation in California and the Bay Area:

Caltrans announced [last week] the recipients of $105 million in State of Good Repair (SGR) program funds from Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), money that will provide capital assistance to local governments and agencies to rehabilitate and modernize California’s existing local transit systems. This program has a specific goal of keeping transit systems in a state of good repair, including the purchase of new transit vehicles and maintenance and rehabilitation of transit facilities and vehicles.

This includes nearly $38 million for 29 projects across the Bay Area for Fiscal Year 2017-2018. This funding for Bay Area transportation is separate from the nearly $2 billion over 10 years in grant awards and grant recommendations for 23 Bay Area projects announced last month from SB 1 competitive grant programs.
