Funding extensions for emergency road repair projects in Santa Cruz County have been secured from the Federal Highway Administration, Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) and Congressman Jimmy Panetta announced.

The funding was originally approved for infrastructure repair from storm damage in the county in 2016 and 2017, with a two-year spending window.

In a joint announcement, the congressional representatives said: 

“Similar projects have often been granted multiple one-year extensions due to the complex nature of reconstruction projects in California.”

Richard Masoner/Cyclelicious Santa Cruz County, Calif. secured extended funding from the Federal Highway Administration to facilitate continued repairs to infrastructure damaged by storms in 2016 and 2017.

The representatives further noted:

“Last year, the FHWA rejected multiple extension requests to California projects.”

Santa Cruz County sustained more than $120 million in damage at over 200 locations from the storms, more than any other part of California, officials said.

Eshoo said:

“I’m relieved and pleased that the Federal Highway Administration recognized that funding extensions are essential to repairing roads damaged by the storms. My thanks to Congressman Panetta for his partnership in securing this critical funding.”
