The California Transportation Commission has allocated $138 million in new funding to 32 projects that will improve highways, bridges, and passenger rails and further strengthen the state’s economy.

Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty said, “From one end of the state to the other, transportation projects are providing good paying jobs while at the same time reducing traffic congestion for the people and businesses in California.”

According to a Caltrans press release, $1.9 million was allocated for the Gilman Drainage Safety Project on Interstate 5 near Lakehead in Shasta County. The project is designed to improve drainage along the northbound lanes and was initiated as a result of wet-weather related accidents.
