The California Transportation Commission (CTC) last week allocated more than $2.1 billion for projects to repair and improve transportation infrastructure throughout the state — and some of that money is allocated for Plumas County.
District 2 Projects approved last week include:
- A13 at Route 36 Safety (State Route 36 near Chester in Plumas County): Construction of roundabout.
- Cromberg Rehabilitation (State Route 70 in and near Cromberg and Portola in Plumas County): Roadway rehabilitation, repair/replacement of culverts, upgrading of guardrail, upgrading of bridge railing at Humbug Creek Bridge, and upgrading of pedestrian facilities to meet Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards.
- Dorris CAPM (U.S. 97 in and near Dorris in Siskiyou County): Rehabilitation of pavement, upgrading of facilities to meet Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards, upgrading of guardrail and Transportation Management System (TMS) elements.
- Happy Camp Complete Streets (State Route 96 in Happy Camp in Siskiyou County): Sidewalk installation, construction of Class II bike lane, installation of rapid flashing beacons and pedestrian lighting.
Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, accounts for $696 million – nearly one-third of the funding. 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.
Since it was passed in 2017, SB 1 has fully or partially funded more than 7,000 projects, including 2,500 already completed, investing more than $16 billion toward pavement, bridges, trade corridors, transit and rail, and walking and biking paths.
