Plan for Contra Costa's Future
Faster. Cleaner. Greener.
CCTA has developed a draft 2020 Transportation Expenditure Plan (TEP) with every community member in mind. From Brentwood to Orinda, we’re reaching out to drivers, walkers, bikers and bus-takers to learn where the roads need fixing, where the bus routes should connect, where to modernize our roads and transit systems with new technology, and how to better serve the underserved.
This plan outlines a vision for improving the way we move through Contra Costa County and here’s a glimpse into the categories of investments CCTA is considering:
- Improve State Route 242, Highway 4 and eBART Corridor
- Modernize I-680, Highway 24, and BART Corridor
- Enhance I-80, I-580, and BART Corridor
- Make Countywide Improvements that Enhance our Communities
Local Dollars Spent Locally
For any of life’s big projects, it’s important to have a plan, especially when it involves choosing how to spend your money. It feels good to make decisions that will not only benefit you today, but that will continue to serve you tomorrow. It is the CCTA’s job to use the county’s transportation funds in the most efficient way we can, using local dollars on local projects. We support projects that reduce traffic congestion, improve our roads, provide reliable and convenient public transit, and improve our environment.
In order to satisfy all of the county’s transportation needs, it’s important that we use our budget with a thoughtful plan. That is why we created the 2020 Transportation Expenditure Plan (TEP).
The county is unable to fund any new major projects to address pressing mobility needs without a new plan. The 2020 TEP was designed to pick up where our old voter-passed funding measures will have left off. The plan will ensure that Contra Costa County will continue to receive new and much-needed transportation improvements in every region of the county.
Imagine the Possibilities
What if every trip you took was faster, cleaner, and greener? CCTA is developing a plan to help make this happen.
Contra Costa County’s population is expanding, the number of people older than 65 is increasing, and the demand on our roads and highways is intensifying. CCTA has developed a 35-year Transportation Expenditure Plan (TEP) that is specifically designed to maintain and support our infrastructure in a way that is smart and sustainable, and to accommodate the diverse and growing needs of our county. Just a few of key goals of this plan are to:
- Smooth traffic flow
- Improve transit options
- Provide cleaner BART stations and train cars
- Reduce emissions and improve air quality
- Increase bicycle lanes and walking paths
We’d love to hear what’s important to you!
