Federal Highway Stimulus Funds May Get Direction This Week

The San Diego Association of Governments said March 13 that it will recommend putting the bulk of its federal highway stimulus money in coastal North County , to widen a curving section of state Route 76.

Sandag’s transportation committee plans to discuss the matter March 20.

Staff for the region’s planning agency recommends putting $105 million of federal stimulus money into a 5.5-mile stretch of Route 76 between Melrose Drive in Oceanside and South Mission Road in Bonsall.

In addition, the agency recommends steering $18 million toward the Interstate 805/Carroll Canyon Road widening project, and $4 million toward pedestrian projects at the Grossmont trolley station in La Mesa.
