Federal Funding Update


FHWA Releases SAFETEA-LU
Funds for I-5 Project

In August 2005, the president signed the long-awaited $286 billion national surface transportation bill. This past December, most of the $1.6 million specified in the bill for the Santa Clarita I-5 Gateway Improvement Project was released by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and made available to Caltrans.
The agency is currently managing and providing oversight on the environmental studies (EIR/EIS) phase of this critically important freeway improvement project.  Availability of these funds will expedite project delivery, and further cement federal support for the roadway construction.
The effort to secure these funds was led by Rep.  Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, and supported by Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer.
