IMPROVING ACCESS TO CALIFORNIA'S PORTS
This report, written in response to California Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 96 (Garamendi), is a cooperative effort of the California Transportation Commission, the California Department of Transportation, and the California Association of Port Authorities. The report addresses port access issues by examining two categories of projects: 1) those projects that might be eligible for inclusion in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) under current law; and 2) those projects that probably would not be eligible for STIP funding, but with appropriate changes in state law, could be considered for state financial assistance. The report is organized as follows: Chapter 1 provides background information. Chapter 2 describes the economic significance of the ports. Chapter 3 discusses how traffic congestion threatens the economic well-being of California's ports and of the state as a whole. Chapter 4 describes special port access and waterside improvements to address access problems. Chapter 5 outlines the role of the STIP, while Chapter 6 identifies alternative funding sources, including state, federal, local, and private sources. Finally, Chapter 7 outlines a specific proposal for including port access projects in the STIP, and lists a number of actions for expediting port access improvements.
