Caltrans has received millions of dollars in gas tax funding for repairs to drainage systems along Interstate 5 in Kern County.
The funding came as part of a package of $533 million in allocations done by the California Transportation Commission for highway projects throughout the state.
Two projects along I-5 near Fort Tejon are the beneficiaries of the spending.
A $7.1 million drainage project from north of Fort Tejon State Historic Park to south of Grapevine Road will repair culverts along I-5. The Transportation Commission allocated $4.9 million to the project.
A $14.2 million project from north of the Fort Tejon Overcrossing to south of the Grapevine Undercrossing will also repair culverts along I-5. The Transportation Commission allocated $2.2 million for this project.
