California approves North Coast highway projects

The California Transportation Commission this week allocated more than $495 million for projects to fix and improve transportation infrastructure throughout California.

Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, accounts for more than two-thirds of this critical investment — $328 million.

“This substantial investment will help improve transportation for all Californians now and in the future,” said Caltrans Director Toks Omishakin. “This includes moving toward a more climate-friendly, safe, and equitable state transportation system.”

Projects approved include:

Approximately $796,000 toward pavement, guardrail, lighting, and other upgrades on Route 299 from the 101 junction to east of Blue Lake Boulevard in Humboldt County.

Approximately $853,000 toward pavement, guardrail, and other upgrades on Route 299 from Blue Lake to east of the Burney Vista Point in Humboldt County.

Approximately $841,000 toward pavement, guardrail, and signage upgrades on U.S. 101 near Willits in Mendocino County.

Approximately $776,000 toward culvert upgrades on U.S. 101 near Laytonville, Leggett, and Piercy in Mendocino 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.
