MARYSVILLE — The California Transportation Commission Aug. 6 announced it has funded $487 million for 82 construction projects to improve transportation, safety and mobility across California.

“The California Transportation Commission is taking action to improve transportation, safety and mobility from Del Norte to San Diego County,” said California Transportation Agency Secretary Brian Kelly. “These construction projects put people to work and improve the quality of life for millions of Californians.”

“California is investing in transportation infrastructure to support regional job growth and improve the state’s mobility for years to come,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

The allocations include $169 million from Proposition 1B, a 2006 voter-approved transportation bond. To date, more than $16 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been put to work statewide. The remaining $318 million in allocations today came from various state and federal transportation accounts.

Highlights of the funding allocations include:

• $1.25 million on State Route 49 in El Dorado County at the Rattlesnake Bar intersection to construct left-turn lanes as a safety enhancement.

• $27.3 million for a bridge vertical clearance project on Interstate 80 in Placer County from Brace Road in Loomis to Magra Road in Magra. The project will raise six bridges and lower the roadway beneath three structures to meet vertical clearance requirements for permit vehicles. The required minimum vertical clearance is 16 feet, 6 inches. The bridges identified have vertical clearances of 15 feet, 6 inches or less. Construction is scheduled for 2014.

• $1.3 million to replace metal beam guardrail with concrete barriers at nine locations on Interstate 80 and State Routes 49 and 193 in Placer County. This project will reduce repair costs and cut down on highway maintenance workers’ exposure to traffic.
