TRUCKEE, Calif. –  California State Senator Marie Alvarado-Gil announced the successful acquisition of $1 million in funding for the Town of Truckee’s Reimagine Bridge Street Project.

The project is focused on achieving several vital goals, including enhancing pedestrian safety and circulation, optimizing traffic flow, establishing a quiet zone to eliminate the need for train engineers to sound their horns near the track crossing, and preserving historic buildings.

Senator Alvarado-Gil expressed her excitement regarding the funding approval, stating, “The Reimagine Bridge Street Project is an essential endeavor that addresses the needs of residents and visitors of the Town of Truckee. With this funding, we can create a safer, more efficient, and historically conscious environment for all. I am proud to have played a role in securing these resources for our community.”

The funding for the Reimagine Bridge Street Project was made possible through the joint efforts of Senator Alvarado-Gil, local stakeholders, and government agencies committed to advancing the well-being and progress of the Town of Truckee.

Town of Truckee Manager Jen Callaway expressed her sincere gratitude stating, “On behalf of the Town of Truckee, we want to thank Senator Alvarado-Gil for her support of efforts to improve our downtown pedestrian and traffic flow. Our Reimagine Bridge Street efforts will go a long way towards improving pedestrian and bicycle mobility and safety as well as improve vehicle safety and operations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The $1 million in the state budget that Senator Alvarado-Gil secured for this project is integral to completing this for our community. Thank you, Senator, for your support of our local efforts to provide everyone in our community with options for safer paths of travel such as walking, biking, driving or using public transit to explore our wonderful downtown corridor, businesses and Truckee River.”
