• The California Transportation Commission has given the green light to a $328 million program of state infrastructure improvements, according to Equipment World.
  • The list of 88 projects includes nearly $36 million for biking and pedestrian initiatives and $234 million for “fix-it-first” highway repairs and upgrades. Also part of the spending program are two rail projects, capital improvements along the state highway system and traffic congestion programs.
  • State officials said more transportation spending programs like this are on the horizon because of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s 10-year, $52 billion transportation funding bill.
