2 California is facing a significant transportation infrastructure shortfall. California is using innovative approaches to address current and future impacts of increased trade volumes. It is about focused planning, a State vision, innovative financial approaches, and collaborative joint ventures. INTRODUCTION
3 ADMINISTRATION GOODS MOVEMENT POLICY Generate jobs Increase mobility/reduce traffic congestion Improve air quality/protect public health Enhance public and port safety Improve California’s quality of life
4 GOODS MOVEMENT ACTION PLAN The plan is a joint effort of the California Business, Transportation and Housing Agency (BTH), and the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA). The developmental goal has been a comprehensive, open and transparent process to achieve maximum stakeholder input. The approach has evolved over time.
5 GOODS MOVEMENT ACTION PLAN PRINCIPLES Undertake simultaneous and continuous improvement in infrastructure and mitigation. Consider the 4 port-to-border corridors as an integrated system Pursue excellence through technology, efficiency, and workforce development. Develop partnerships to advance goals. Promote trust, provide for meaningful public participation, address environmental justice concerns.
7 GOODS MOVEMENT ACTION PLAN The Action Plan is a response to: Severe congestion at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach that occurred in 2004 (and continued GROWTH!). Public concern regarding community, health and environmental impacts of goods movement. Importance of goods movement to the State’s economy and global competitiveness.
8 PROJECT CHALLENGES/MEETING THE NEEDS How do we meet the need? September 2005 Phase I Report identified 180 projects or groups of projects, totaling $47.3 billion. January 2007 Final Phase II Report, in the “Preliminary List of Candidate Projects” identified 22 projects totaling $15 billion.
9 WEB SITES Phase II was approved January 10, 2007. The Phase I and Phase II Reports and other related materials may be accessed at http://www.arb.ca.gov/gmp/gmp.htm.
10 CONTEXT—GOVERNOR’S STRATEGIC GROWTH PLAN California’s Strategic Growth Plan (SGP) is intended to lay the foundation for long-term investments in the State’s critical infrastructure needs. It is a ‘down payment’ to jump start delivery of critical projects. More resources--including public investments and public/private joint ventures--will be needed over the long term.
11 SGP AND BALLOT PROPOSITIONS $37.3 billion infrastructure package $19.9 billion for transportation (Prop. 1B) $ 2.9 billion for housing (Prop. 1C) $10.4 billion for education (Prop. 1D) $ 4.1 billion for levees improvement and flood control (Prop. 1E)
12 SB 1266 Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Fund of 2006 State highway safety improvements and repairs Freeway upgrades to reduce congestion Local street and road repair Seismic safety improvements to local bridges Expansion of public transit Air pollution reduction Port anti-terrorism security improvements $19.9 billion for transportation To be administered by the California Transportation Commission (CTC)
16 Trade Corridors Improvement Fund (TCIF) $2 billion trade infrastructure program, with these guiding principles: Identify the key trade corridors; Balance the various criteria in Prop 1B; Invest across modes; Pursue partnerships; and Program for deliverability, maximum benefit and optimum performance Formal guidelines by the CTC in Spring/Summer 2007
18 PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS “P3” is an emerging and critical aspect of California’s innovative approach to funding needed infrastructure projects. There are a number of proposed joint venture projects that will utilize innovative partnerships approaches. Some projects will be primarily funded by the public sector, with private sector contributions. Some projects will be primarily funded by the private sector, with public sector contributions.
19 POTENTIAL GOODS MOVEMENT PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS PROJECTS Alameda Corridor East grade separations in Orange County Other Southern California potential P3 projects include: Gerald Desmond Bridge (Port of Long Beach) Truck toll lanes in the Los Angeles (SCAG) region SR-11 / Otay Mesa East POE
San Diego Border Region San Ysidro POE Otay Mesa POE
23 THEMES HEARD YESTERDAY Corridor Focus State and Local risk taking National Infrastructure Bank: depoliticizing transportation decisions – CTC model Criteria to judge projects for funding – include energy independence? California is like a nation - ideal location for major national pilot
24 CONCLUSION California has major goods movement challenges. But, we are addressing them through a dynamic process that includes a State vision, focused planning, diverse joint ventures and other governmental investments, and collaborative partnerships.
