Nevada County has received word that almost $2.1 million is on its way for road improvements, including $1.4 million for the county, $341,000 for Truckee, $273,000 for Grass Valley and $65,000 for Nevada City as part of the Fed’s stimulus package, county executive officer Rick Haffey said in his Friday memo to the rank and file.
Anticipating further funding, Haffey also sent a letter to our U.S. Congressman Tom McClintock outlining a list of potential “shovel projects” for the county and cities of Grass Valley, Nevada City and Truckee. It is the first complete list for all the local governments.
The long-pursued Dorsey Drive interchange is included in the “wish list.” The total comes to $9.12 million.
“We believe that these projects are not only important as improvements to the community’s infrastructure but also would serve as an important economic stimulus for the region,” Haffey writes on behalf of the county and cities. “We look forward to your support and assistance.”
