LaMalfa Announces Department of Transportation Grants to Repair NorCal Forest Service Roads
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the Department of Transportation (DOT) awarded $51,063,532 for California transportation infrastructure repairs, including forest service road repairs in the 1st district.
LaMalfa said: “Crumbling roads and other infrastructure have long plagued rural California, especially in the North State, making it harder to efficiently fight fires and manage disasters when they happen. Repairing some of our dilapidated forest service roads will also expand recreation opportunities for local residents, such as hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, etc. I am happy to see these funds allocated for Northern California, and I look forward to the tangible benefit these projects will have on our area.”
A breakdown of the grant funding is as follows:
- $684,009.00 – Forest Service Road Repair Project – Butte
