Millions Headed To Napa County, Bay Area Infrastructure Projects
NAPA COUNTY, CA — The California Transportation Commission on Friday announced more than $1 billion was headed to support repair and improvement projects across the Golden State, including tens of millions to boost Caltrans efforts in the Bay Area.
In Napa County, $1.7 million has been allocated for the No Name Creek Bridge Project near Calistoga. The project involves bridge preventative maintenance and scour mitigation to protect the bridge’s structural integrity.
More than $30 million is earmarked to support other Bay Area projects in Alameda, Marin, Santa Clara, San Mateo and Sonoma counties.
In Sonoma County, $2.9 million is allocated near Petaluma, north of Kastania Road for a project to stabilize a slope and install rock slope protection and drainage system. Another $2.7 million is allocated near Schellville for bridge rail replacement and upgrades at various bridges.
Near Sebastopol, $2.3 million is allocated to upgrade various bridge rails. Another $1.7 million is allocated near Fort Ross to stabilize a slope with micro piles and grout injection.
Lastly, $700,000 is allocated for plant establishment and erosion control at Sonoma Creek Bridge and Hooker Creek Bridge.
Of the $1.1 billion allocated across the state, nearly half comes from the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, with $132 million sourced from Senate Bill 1 and $309 million from the state’s Local Transportation Climate Adaptation Program.
“California is making historic transportation investments and building a climate-resilient system to connect every community in a safe and reliable way,” said Caltrans Director Tony Tavares. “The funding will maintain and repair our roads while investing in public transit, bike and pedestrian pathways, and climate-adaptation projects.”
California has received more than $32 billion since Congress passed the “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law” in 2021, including $24 billion to support transportation projects.
