INTERREGIONAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM

This is one of the state funding programs and is also known as “State Choice.” It is a statewide discretionary program which utilizes 25% of the State transportation improvement funds. This source of funds may be used for three sub-programs — intercity rail, interregional roads, and an interregional high priority State program which is available for road, rail, and urban rail. Projects funded through the Interregional Improvements Program are largely developed by Caltrans and there are no County minimums or guarantees.
