Caltrans: 90 percent of stimulus money awarded
· $992 million directed to 35 projects that are increasing capacity
and/or reconstructing existing roads.
· $217 million for 91 projects that will better manage California’s
traffic operations, relieve congestion, and improve road safety.
· $102 million used to fund 14 projects to rehabilitate, replace, or
add capacity to existing bridges.
“Caltrans has worked hard to award contracts with Recovery Act funds. Projects are now currently under contract, employing people, and providing much-needed infrastructure repairs and reconstruction,” said Brian Stopper, program manager for R&L Brosamer Inc. In July 2010, the company was awarded a contract for the Bay Area’s Presidio Parkway project and is currently building the project’s signature tunnel, which is primarily financed by $83 million in Recovery Act funding.
