State suggests quick action to access Transportation simulus dollars for bike/ped projects
Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, Caltrans has $77M in Transportation Enhancements (TE) funds. Caltrans needs to program $28 million of these funds for TE projects located on the State Highway System. The remainder of the funding will be programmed by your Metropolitan Planning Organization (click here to see the list for the amount each MPO/RTPO is receiving). This TE funding is your best chance to get bike/ped/Safe Routes to School projects built through ARRA.
* Your name, title, organization
2) Do you have a local bike/ped or Safe Routes to School project that is shovel ready? If so, we urge you to contact your MPO/RTPO and your Mayor to:
* Propose the project that you want to see funded (click here to see the list for how much money your region will receive)
Please help us to quickly develop a list of bike/ped projects that are ready to go on the State Highway System. Caltrans may ask the CTC to take action to finalize projects next week, so we have to move very quickly.
