Last week, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) released the 2019 Active Transportation Program (Cycle 4) Staff Recommendations for the Statewide and Small Urban & Rural Components. Two Stockton projects are being recommended for funds from the Statewide portion of the program.
2019 ATP Scores:
The Active Transportation Program (ATP) was created by Senate Bill 99 to encourage increased use of active modes of transportation, such as walking and biking. Since inception, the ATP has funded over 700 projects across the state benefitting both urban and rural areas. For Cycle 4, CTC staff chose 55 projects for a total of $262.5 million over the next four years.
Several areas of the state were successful in this round, including San Joaquin County. Out of the 23 projects submitted for funding from this region – Stockton’s Safe Routes to School Safety and Connectivity Improvements project for $2.838 million and the California Street Separated Bikeway for $4.39 million – both scored above the points threshold of 90.
These staff recommendations will be discussed and voted on by the California Transportation Commission at its January meeting in Rocklin. Also on the agenda for that meeting is a discussion of Caltrans’ analysis of ATP achievements so far.
The Statewide and Small Urban and Rural components make up sixty percent of the total ATP Cycle 4 funding; the remainder will go to projects chosen by large regional Metropolitan Planning Organizations (such as SJCOG) in the spring. Cycle 4 funds will be allocated over a period of four years, beginning in 2019 through 2023.
