For more than 20 years, PCTPA has leveraged existing and limited resources to obtain additional state and federal funds to improve Placer County’s regional transportation system. Today, transportation funding is at an all-time low. The gas tax is a declining revenue stream, covering less than half of what is needed just to maintain our local streets. To improve the safety of our roads and continue to attract large employers to our region, we will need to invest at least $3 billion in critical transportation improvements over the next 30 years.
PCTPA has overseen more than $1.5 billion in transportation projects throughout Placer County, including the I-80 Bottleneck Widening and the SR 65 Lincoln Bypass. By reducing traffic congestion on major highways, maintaining local roadways, and providing alternate transportation programs, PCTPA keeps Placer Moving.
