TAMC Board Highlights

August 26, 2020

TAMC Board Receives Revised Measure X Revenue Forecasts  

The Transportation Agency Board of Directors learned that using an initial conservative estimate of $20 million to estimate Measure X annual revenues proved to be wise decision during a staff presentation on the revised revenue forecast.  Actual Measure X revenues that were as high as $30.5 million in fiscal year 2018/19 fell to $23.5 million in fiscal year 2019/20 due to the impacts of COVID-19.  The most recent forecast for the next three years estimates revenues will bounce back to between $26.7 million to $27.4 million annually.

This projection combined with the Board’s decision to continue programming Measure X funds to match the initial estimate of $20 million per year, still provides full funding for near-term Measure X projects as programmed in the 2019 Integrated Funding Plan.

These priority projects include the Imjin Road Widening project, which uses $17 million of Measure X funds as match to a $19 million SB1 Local Partnership Program grant, the Highway 218 Segment of the Fort Ord Regional Trail and Greenway, which uses $1.0 million of Measure X funds as a match to a $9.2 million Active Transportation Program grant, and the State Route 156 / Castroville Boulevard project, pending receipt of $20 million of grant funds with $2.5 million of Measure X as match.

TAMC Board Approves Competitive Grand Funding for Local Projects

The approval of the resolution will fund the following projects through the competitive grant program for fiscal years 2020/21 through 2022/23:

  • Salinas – Boronda Road Congestion Relief Project – $4,000,000
  • Salinas – Bardin Road Safe Routes to School – $1,800,000

  • Monterey – Traffic System, Pedestrian/Bike Upgrades – $1,680,000
  • Salinas – Pedestrian Crossing Enhancements – $545,000
  • Pacific Grove – Point Pinos Trail Project – $382,000
  • Greenfield – Walnut Avenue Pedestrian/Bike Improvements – $590,000
  • Seaside – Broadway Avenue Corridor Improvements – $600,000

CSUMB Student Appointed to the Measure X Citizens Oversight Committee

The TAMC Board of Director appointed Cal State University, Monterey Bay student, Natalie Olivas to serve as the alternate youth representative on the Measure X Citizens Oversight Committee. Her appointment fills a long-standing vacancy on the committee that has existed since members were appointed by the TAMC Board in 2017.

Members of the Citizens Oversight Committee represent a diverse range of community interests to assure that a broad range of geographic and stakeholder interests on represented on the committee. Their duty is to ensure that Measure X funds are spent according to the terms of the Measure X Transportation Safety & Investment Plan. Youth representation on the committee is one of the additional appointments the Board deemed to be important to assure that a broad range of geographic and stakeholders’ interests are represented.

The Plan, approved by voters in November 2016, is anticipated to generate an estimated $600 million over 30 years for transportation projects & programs in Monterey County.

“CTC APPROVES $1.198 MILLION ALLOCATION TO FUND RIGHT OF WAY CERTIFICATION FOR THE SR 218 CANYON DEL REY SEGMENT OF THE FORTAG PROJECT”

 MONTEREY COUNTY – The California Transportation Commission (CTC) approved the allocation of nearly $1.2 million of Senate Bill 1 Active Transportation Program funds yesterday for right of way certification for the SR 218 Canyon Del Rey Segment of the Fort Ord Regional Trail and Greenway (FORTAG).

This funding comes upon the heels of an allocation in June of $600,000 from SB1 Partnership Program funds for the design of this segment of the FORTAG project. With the combination of both allocations, the Transportation Agency for Monterey County (TAMC) anticipates that the design and right of way certification will be complete in 2021.  Construction on the Canyon Del Rey segment of the FORTAG project will begin in 2022.

The Fort Ord Regional Trail and Greenway is a regional Measure X project approved by voters in the Transportation Safety & Investment Plan in 2016.  Having this local measure, has enabled TAMC to successfully leverage more than $34 million of additional transportation funding into Monterey County for local and regional projects. The $1.198 allocation is another example of that success.

The Canyon Del Rey segment is a 1.5-mile paved bicycle and pedestrian trail segment of the proposed 28-mile Fort Ord Regional Trail & Greenway. It will improve safety, promote healthier lifestyles and the project provides a safe alternative to Highway 218, between Del Rey Woods Elementary School in Del Rey Oaks and the Laguna Grande Regional Park in Seaside.

The vision for the Measure X funded Fort Ord Regional Trail & Greenway (FORTAG) is to create a multimodal route designed to accommodate people of all ages and abilities that connects communities in and around the former Fort Ord to each other and to education, employment, community and recreation centers. It will serve as a safe pedestrian and bicycle corridor connecting the cities of Seaside, Marina, Del Rey Oaks, Monterey and unincorporated community residents to California State University Monterey Bay, the Fort Ord National Monument, and the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Scenic Trail.
