Program Descriptions


The Capital Outlay Support subprogram, along with the subprograms of Capital Outlay Projects, Local Assistance, Program Development, Legal, Operations, and Maintenance, make up the Highway Transportation Program, which operates, maintains, and continues development of California's state highways. Development and delivery of capital projects make up the largest portion of these efforts. The program also meets its objectives through: (1) coordination and control required by federal and state law for implementing transportation projects, (2) assisting city and county transportation programs, and (3) management of traffic through a system of monitoring, analysis, and control. In addition, this program strives to improve highway travel, safety, and the environment through testing, research, and technology development.
