California Invests More than $3.1B in Projects to Rebuild and Upgrade State’s Transportation Infrastructure

SACRAMENTO, CA — The California Transportation Commission (CTC) recently allocated more than $3.1 billion for projects that will improve the state’s transportation infrastructure, making it safer, more sustainable, and more reliable.
The allocation includes nearly $1.8 billion in funding from the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) of 2021 and almost $200 million in funding from Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
“These state and federal investments will continue to allow Caltrans to rebuild our transportation system so that it is more climate-change resilient, reduces pollution and travel times, and improves goods movement," said Tony Tavares, California Department of Transportation Director. "These projects will have a direct, positive impact on every Californian. Commuters, truckers, and visitors will all benefit from more reliable roadways and a safer transportation network.”

The IIJA, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, is a once-in-a-generation investment in the nation's infrastructure to improve the sustainability and resiliency of energy, water, broadband, and transportation systems. California has received more than $22 billion since the IIJA’s passage in November 2021.

SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually that is shared equally 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.
