$1B In Transportation Funds Means Green Light For Bay Area Projects

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Another billion dollars in transportation funding is being doled out for big road projects in California.

These projects are all about making it easier for people to get around, according to Caltrans spokesman Bob Haus.

“Just about all the projects that were approved, or at least the big ticket items, all have something to do with congestion relief,” he said.

KCBS’ Mark Seelig Reports:

Some of the work has been talked about for years, including new HOV lanes through Northern Marin County, and a new auxiliary lane on Highway 101, and a traffic light synchronization in Contra Costa and Alameda counties.

In all, more than a $110 million will be spent.

Haus said the construction should begin this year, which will bring jobs to the area.
