Uncategorized - California’s Five-Year Infrastructure Plan 2016

The California Infrastructure Planning Act requires the Governor to submit a five-year infrastructure plan to the Legislature for consideration with the annual budget bill. The 2016 Five-Year Infrastructure Plan (Plan) reflects the Governor’s proposal for investing $55 billion in state infrastructure over the next five years.

The investment in physical infrastructure is a core function of state government. Infrastructure and capital assets allow for the delivery of key public services and the movement of goods across the state—both essential components in fostering the state’s long-term economic growth. There continues to be critical deficiencies in the state’s infrastructure, including a significant backlog of maintenance on existing facilities that has built up over years of underfunding. The state must also do more to protect critical infrastructure and plan for the impacts of climate change.
