CTC allocates funds for California rail projects

The California Transportation Commission (CTC) has allocated funds for three California rail projects.


"Today's transportation system is more than just highways," said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty. "Our Active Transportation Program supports a healthy, active lifestyle that also helps achieve California's safety, mobility and greenhouse gas reduction goals."

The Southern California Regional Rail Authority will receive $7.4 million for the Ventura County Sealed Corridor Grade Crossing Improvement Project. The project will improve grade crossings on the Ventura Subdivision in Simi Valley and crossings will be brought up to Southern California Regional Rail Authority (Metrolink) sealed corridor engineering standards.

The city of Fairfield will receive $11 million for the Fairfield/Vacaville Intermodal Station project, which includes construction of a new intermodal facility for the Capitol Corridor.

And the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority will receive approximately $39 million for construction of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) to San Jose project's Phase 1 portion, which will extend BART from Warm Springs to Berryessa.
