The purpose of this program is to reduce congestion on roadways in San Mateo County. The program divides streets and highways projects into two categories: those that will remove bottlenecks in the most congested commute corridors and those that will improve supplemental roadway projects throughout the county. A little more than 27 percent of the total sales tax revenues, or $413 million in 2004 dollars, have been allocated to this category. It is anticipated that this will generate an additional $325 million in state and federal grants.

Highway Capital Improvement Program
The San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA) is soliciting Letters of Interest from eligible highway project sponsors for potential project candidates under the New Measure A Highway Program.

The Letters of Interest will assist the TA in developing a ten-year Highway Capital Improvement Program (CIP) from FY 2016 through FY 2025. The Highway CIP will be used as an informational tool to better manage funding needs with projected revenues, and to help determine level of interest for potential projects in the next Measure A Highway Call for Projects (CFP), which is scheduled to be released in May 2015, pending Board approval.

For more information, please click here. Letters of Interest are due to the TA by March 30, 2015. 

If you have any questions regarding this request, please feel free to contact Pete Rasmussen,rasmussenp@samtrans.com or 650-508-6343
