2012/13 List of Approved BTA Projects!

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.
