Los Angeles County Public Works inspects 1,113 National Bridge Inventory bridges Countywide (not including City of Los Angeles). The estimated cost to replace all bridges classified as in poor condition, widen all bridges classified as structurally obsolete, and to upgrade bridge railings to current standards is $2.2 billion.
Considering the significant need in the LA County region, a Transportation Subcommittee is being established under Infrastructure LA. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request to join.
State Call for Project Nominations
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) released a Call for Project Nominations to partner on potential grant applications for the Reconnecting Communities Pilot (RCP) established under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL).

Nominations are due by June 30, 2022.
Caltrans is looking for nominations for the following:
- Project nominations where Caltrans is the lead RCP applicant
- Request Caltrans to be joint applicant on a local RCP grant application
- Request Caltrans letter of support for a local RCP grant application
