Four Sacramento Area Transportation Projects Prioritized on Northern California "Megaregion Dozen" List
16-county Megaregion Working Group agrees on 12 priority transportation investments
The Northern California Megaregion Working Group approved the “Megaregion Dozen,” a list of 12 transportation projects that connect the San Francisco Bay Area to the Sacramento region. Together, the three Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) that form the working group represent 16 counties, 136 cities, and a population of nearly 11 million people. Collective advocacy and lobbying support for the “Megaregion Dozen” puts each project in a better position to acquire the funding it needs to be completed.
The timing is right as the U.S. Congress is setting priorities for the pending federal budget, and talks continue on the passage of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure spending bill. Adopting the “Megaregion Dozen” is a big step toward the group’s shared vision for mobility across the megaregion.
