$89 Million for Regional Border Projects

5/25/18 - Jose Burciaga

 

The Trade Corridor Enhancement Program, created by Senate Bill 1 (SB 1) and funded by the recent gas tax increase and federal dollars, provides approximately $400-$500 million annually for infrastructure improvements on federally designated Trade Corridors of National and Regional Significance, on the Primary Freight Network, and along other corridors corridors that have a high volume of freight movement. The California Transportation Commission, which is tasked with implementing this program, recently approved $1.39 billion in infrastructure projects from this program, including $89 million for the border region. The following projects in Otay Mesa were funded:

  • $6 million for Phase 1 of the Otay Truck Route Phase IV (as previously announced in our newsletter).
  • $21.9 million for the South Bay Expressway/905 Southbound connectors
  • $37.1 million for the Siempre Viva Interchange/State Route 11
  • $5 million for the Otay II Port of Entry
  • $11.9 million for technology that will display accurate border wait times to the traveling public at all California-Baja California Ports of Entry.

A complete list of projects can be found here. Special thanks to CALTRANS, SANDAG and Senator Hueso for their support in this effort. See Senator Hueso’s letter to the CTC.
