Alameda County Lands $63 million in Transportation Grant Money

The Alameda County Transportation Commission has secured $63 million in grant funding for transportation projects, including money to spend on areas such as Alameda Point and Alameda’s Northern waterfront.

On Friday, the Alameda County Transportation Commission announced that it has secured $63 million in grants over four years for transportation projects, from the One Bay Area Grant program. The Commission is required to spend 70 percent of the funds in so-called Primary Development Areas, which include Alameda Point and the Northern Waterfront in Alameda.

The One Bay Area Grant program is federally funded to the tune of roughly $800 million.

The Transportation Commission is to spend its grant on improvements to local streets and roads, bicycle and pedestrian projects, and transit-oriented development.

The agency is holding an ongoing series of public meetings through next year to gather input on projects and the use of funds.
