Alameda CTC's mission is to plan, fund and deliver transportation programs and projects that expand access and improve mobility to foster a vibrant and livable Alameda County. The Commission funds and oversees numerous transportation capital projects in Alameda County. These projects improve highway corridors, provide accessible public transit for all, maintain and improve local streets and roads, and ensure safe travel for pedestrians and bicyclists. The Alameda CTC is currently managing numerous active capital projects in various stages of delivery at a combined total cost of $2.5 billion. The Semi-Annual Capital Projects Update is presented to the Commission twice annually and provides an overview of the current Alameda CTC Capital Projects Program, including a status summary and project highlights.
In November 2000 Alameda County voters approved Measure B, providing $1.4 billion in essential transportation investments and capital improvements and programs throughout the county. Of the $1.4 billion in funding, $756.5 has been committed to the Alameda CTC Capital Projects Program; which is guided by the 20 year Transportation Expenditure Plan (TEP). The Measure B Strategic Plan outlines the annual allocations to the 27 capital projects identified in the 2000 TEP and the approach for delivery of the remainder of the capital projects authorized in 1986. Over the last 3 decades, local Measure B funding has successfully attracted external funding to provide vital and strategic capital improvements countywide.
In 2006, Measure B was critical to securing over $400 million in voter approved Proposition 1B (Prop 1B bond) funding from the Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Bond Act, towards delivery of an $800 million highway program; $329 million from the Corridor Mobility Improvement Account (CMIA), $18.7 million from the Traffic Light Synchronization Program (TLSP) and $73 million from the Trade Corridor Improvement Fund (TCIF). The projects which have received CMIA, TCIF and TLSP funding are noted below.
The 2014 Transportation Expenditure Plan (2014 TEP), which responds to the county’s continued transportation needs, will be funded by Measure BB - approved by Alameda County voters on November 4, 2014, with 70 percent support. Measure BB will generate nearly $8 billion over 30 years for essential transportation improvements in every city throughout Alameda County. The Measure BB sales tax became effective on April 1, 2015, and Alameda CTC expects to begin receiving deposits of the proceeds in the July 2015 timeframe. Measure BB At a Glance provides information on the Measure BB 2-Year Allocation Plan approved by the Commission in March 2015, which represents the initial Measure BB funding allocations for certain projects and programs in the 2014 TEP. This approval stands to provide an influx of $47 million for capital projects and programs over the next two fiscal years (FY2015-16 and FY2016-17).
In addition to the Measure BB 2-year Allocation Plan, Alameda CTC will begin monthly direct local distributions to cities, jurisdictions and transit agencies in summer or fall of 2015, work with your cities as they deliver locally prioritized projects and programs. Direct local distribution projections for the remainder of fiscal year 2014-15 and upcoming fiscal year 2015-16, and current and upcoming contracting opportunities are available on our website.
