REDDING, Calif. - Caltrans announced that the California Transportation Commission (CTC) has approved funding for more than 100 transportation projects from the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. 

The funds from the act amount to $690 million, which will be used to make key improvements to maintain transportation infrastructure in California. 

The CTC also approved more than $1.3 billion in funding toward nearly 150 transportation projects for additional maintenance, improvements and construction throughout California. 

Most of these projects are a part of the State Highway Operations and Protection Program, which is the state highway system's "fix-it-first" program that funds safety improvements, emergency repairs, highway preservation and some operational highway improvements. Caltrans will focus on improving pavement, bridges, culverts and intelligent transportation systems. 

A lot of these projects are funded partially by the Road Repair and Accountability Act (SB 1), which is a bill that was signed by Governor Brown in April 2017, and invests $54 billion over the next decade to fix roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California. 

Area projects receiving funding include: 

- Modoc 299 Butte & Ash Creek Bridge Replacement: This project will replace the Butte Creek Bridge on State Route 299E in Adin, and the Ash Creek Bridge on State Route 299E in Modoc county. This project was allocated $8.45 million. 

- Siskiyou 263 Klamath River Bridge: This project will replace the Klamath River Bridge on State Route 263 from north of the Shasta River Bridge to State Route 96 near the city of Yreka, and State Route 96 east of State Route 263 in Siskiyou County. This project was allocated $18.6 million. 

- Tehama 26 East Red Bluff CAPM Pavement Project: This project will improve 13.6 lane miles of State Route 36 from the East Sand Slough Bridge to east of Stice Road in the city of Red Bluff in Tehama County. This project was allocated $1.8 Million.
