Calif.-based OCTA awarded $140M for projects

Posted on January 24, 2011

Last week, Orange County (Calif.) Transportation Authority (OCTA) projects received an added boost when the California Transportation Commission allocated nearly $140 million to fund construction.

The projects awarded are part of the State Transportation Improvement Program and voter-approved Proposition 1B, a $20 billion bond program to fund transportation projects throughout the state.

"We have been working hard to deliver these improvements and this money will provide the needed boost to move the projects into construction," said OCTA Chair Pat Bates. "This is great news for the residents of Orange County and we look forward to breaking ground on these projects in the near future."

The commission allocated the money as a result of state bond sales last month. OCTA projects that received funding include $29.2 million for construction of the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center, $37.6 million for railroad grade separation projects, and $2 million for highway/rail crossing improvements in San Clemente and Dana Point.

Since its passage in 2006, more than $7 billion in Prop 1B funds has been allocated, including more than $420 million for Orange County projects.
