SBCTA Prioritizes Projects for Carbon Reduction Program

April 11, 2024

At their April 3, 2024 meeting, the SBCTA Board of Directors approved the submittal of a priority project list to the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) for funding through the federal Carbon Reduction Program (CRP).  The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, established the CRP.  Administered by the Federal Highway Administration, the program provides $6.4 billion in formula funding over five years for states to develop carbon reduction strategies and for projects to reduce transportation carbon dioxide emissions, including traffic management, public transportation, pedestrian facilities, alternative fuels, and port electrification.  Over the five year program, California is set to receive more than $100 million per year in CRP funding.

In March 2023, the SBCTA Board of Directors approved the draft list of priority projects and SBCTA staff worked with member jurisdictions to select priority projects that met regional and state project eligibility.  The project list represents a mix of active transportation, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, street/road improvement and safety projects, as well as an innovative Vehicle Miles Travelled (VMT) mitigation program.  Those projects include:

  • $677,340 to the City of Redlands for the Redlands Regional Connector Project
  • $701,913 to the City of Highland for the Highland Regional Connector Project
  • $2,721,400 to the City of Fontana for the San Sevaine Trail Project
  • $1,500,000 to the City of Fontana for the San Sevaine Trail Project Cost of Bid in Excess of Estimate
  • $975,000 to the City of Montclair for the Fremont Avenue / Arrow Highway Active Transportation Improvements Project
  • $1,382,200 to the Town of Apple Valley for the Bear Valley Road Bridge Rehabilitation and Widening Project
  • $3,000,000 to the City of Rancho Cucamonga for the Design of the Haven Complete Streets Project
  • $961,000 to San Bernardino County for the Del Rosa Avenue Sidewalk Improvements Project
  • $1,405,800 to the City of San Bernardino for Arrowhead Grove Charging Infrastructure
  • $2,000,000 to SBCTA for the development of a VMT Mitigation Bank

Residents throughout San Bernardino County will benefit from the transportation and climate impacts these projects will have in the coming years.
