Earlier today, Governor Gavin Newsom announced the state of California, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation, will partner strategically with local governments to expedite work on a network of projects throughout the State of California. This partnership, in collaboration with the Biden-Harris Administration, will bring together related projects that will offer supply chain reliance throughout critical trade corridors, positively impacting Alameda County, the state of California and the nation.
Alameda CTC is pleased to see the federal government and the state of California coming together to develop a comprehensive approach and partnership to address critical goods movement needs. “Ensuring the efficient and effective movement of goods, supporting local jobs, and reducing impacts on local communities are key priorities for the Alameda CTC,” stated Executive Director Tess Lengyel.
Alameda CTC is committed to working with our state and federal partners to deliver projects the Northern California megaregion that will improve the supply chain and provide tangible benefits to communities disproportionately impacted by goods movement.
“We appreciate Governor Newsom and Secretary Kim’s focus and collaboration to advance projects that will improve operating efficiencies at the Port of Oakland and along our major highway and rail trade corridors, and reduce the emissions and environmental impacts of goods movement in our communities,” stated Alameda CTC Chair Pauline Cutter, Mayor of San Leandro.
