The new Plan Bay Area was adopted last week, outlining transportation and land-use projects to be funded through 2040 within Sonoma, Napa and the other seven Bay Area counties. It’s dependent on receiving an anticipated 292 billion in federal, state and local money, but includes the following road projects.

Is your pet project among them?

Metropolitan Transportation Commission spokesman John Goodwin breaks out the expenditures, saying, “Nearly 88 percent (or $253 billion) of the transportation funds will be used to maintain and operate the highways, transit systems, local streets and roads, and bridges we already have. Another way of looking at the distribution of the revenues — which include fuel taxes, transit fares, bridge tolls, property taxes and dedicated sales taxes — is by mode of transportation.

“Maintenance and operation of the Bay Area’s existing transit systems will receive about 55 percent ($159 billion) of the revenues. The remainder includes 33 percent for street, road, highway and bridge maintenance; 7 percent for transit expansion; and 5 percent for roadway and bridge expansion.”

Here’s a list of road projects that made the list. (Figures are in millions and represent cost, committed funding and discretionary funding.)
