Los Angeles County Gets Over $55 Million in Transportation Funding

Yesterday, the California Transportation Commission allocated $333 million in new funding to 91 projects, including five in Los Angeles County. Thanks, CTC! Here are the projects that will be funded by our chunk o' change:

> $28.3 million for Phase II of the Exposition Light Rail, Culver City to Santa Monica

> $14.7 million for I-110/SR-47 Interchange Improvements

> $10.5 million for Phase II of the Port of Los Angeles Alameda Corridor Terminus/West Basin Rail Yard – Berth 200 Rail Yard Track Connection Improvements

> $1.2 million SR-14/Sand Canyon Gateway Beautification

> $728,000 for the Downtown Lancaster Gateway and Roundabout

Where does all the money come from? About $233 million comes from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006, and the remaining $100 million comes from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars.
