The recommended 2012-13 Bicycle Transportation Account (BTA) projects have been approved by our Director. Out of 39 projects selected (worth almost $12 million in BTA funds) statewide, District 3’s Local Agencies managed to get 9 projects (worth $2.9 million in BTA funds) which is roughly a quarter of the total program! This is great news for our local agencies, so CONGRATULATIONS! The selected agencies/projects/funds are listed below.
I want to point out that the City of Chico and Town of Truckee projects are asterisked because their BTA Approved funding was reduced slightly ($15-20k reduction) in order to balance the BTA program. Nine projects statewide were randomly chosen for slight reductions; we have two of them.
