Millions Headed To SMC Infrastructure Projects
SAN MATEO COUNTY, CA — The California Transportation Commission on Friday announced more than $1 billion headed to support repair and improvement projects across the Golden State, including tens of millions to boost Caltrans efforts in the Bay Area.
In San Mateo County, $4.1 million aid work to install new safety barriers and upgrade guardrails near Pacifica, from south of 2nd Street to south of the Tom Lantos Tunnel. Another $300,00 will fund a plant mitigation project from 14th Street to Linda Mar Boulevard.
More than $30 million is earmarked to support other Bay Area projects in Alameda, Marin, Napa, Santa Clara, and Sonoma counties.
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.
