Senate Bill
No. 628


Introduced by Senator Caballero
(Coauthors: Assembly Members Robert Rivas and Mark Stone)

An act to add Section 14528.9 to the Government Code, and to amend Section 483 of the Streets and Highways Code, relating to transportation.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 628, Caballero. Prunedale Bypass: disposition of excess properties: relinquishment: State Route 183.
(1) Existing law vests the Department of Transportation with full possession and control of the state highway system and associated property. Existing law generally requires proceeds from the sale of excess state highway property to be made available for other highway purposes. Existing law generally provides for the California Transportation Commission to program available funding for transportation capital projects, other than state highway rehabilitation projects, through the state transportation improvement program process, with available funds subject to various fair share distribution formulas. Existing law, in certain cases, requires the commission to instead reallocate funds from canceled state highway projects to other projects within the same county and exempts those funds from the fair share distribution formulas that would otherwise apply.
This bill would require the net proceeds from the sale of any excess properties originally acquired for a replacement alignment for State Highway Route 101 in the County of Monterey, known as the former Prunedale Bypass, to be reserved in the State Highway Account for programming and allocation by the commission, with the concurrence of the Transportation Agency for Monterey County, for other state highway projects in that county, as specified. The bill would exempt these funds from the distribution formulas that otherwise apply to transportation capital improvement funds.
(2) Existing law describes the authorized routes in the state highway system and establishes a process for adoption of a highway on an authorized route by the California Transportation Commission. Existing law requires the commission to relinquish to local agencies state highway segments that have been deleted from the state highway system by legislative enactment or have been superseded by relocation, and in certain other cases.
This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City of Salinas a segment of State Highway Route 183, under certain conditions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 14528.9 is added to the Government Code, to read:

14528.9.
 (a) Proceeds from the sale of any excess properties originally acquired by the department for a replacement alignment for State Highway Route 101 in the County of Monterey, known as the former Prunedale Bypass, less any reimbursements that are due to the federal government and all costs incurred in the sale of those excess properties, shall be reserved in the State Highway Account for programming and allocation by the commission through the State Transportation Improvement Program, with the concurrence of the Transportation Agency for Monterey County, for other state highway projects in the County of Monterey, including, but not limited to, the construction of four express lanes on State Highway Route 156, a major freight and regional corridor, identified by the Governor as a key California infrastructure project in his letter of February 7, 2017, to the National Governors Association, and improvements to the State Highway Route 101 Corridor.
(b) Sections 188 and 188.8 of the Streets and Highways Code do not apply to the proceeds described in subdivision (a).

SEC. 2.

 Section 483 of the Streets and Highways Code is amended to read:

483.
 (a) Route 183 is from Route 101 in the City of Salinas to Route 1 near Castroville.
(b) Upon a determination by the commission that it is in the best interests of the state to do so, the commission may, upon terms and conditions approved by it, relinquish to the City of Salinas the portion of Route 183 within its jurisdiction, if the department and the city enter into an agreement providing for that relinquishment.
(c) The following conditions apply upon relinquishment:
(1) The relinquishment shall become effective on the date following the county recorder’s recordation of the relinquishment resolution containing the commission’s approval of the terms and conditions of the relinquishment.
(2) On and after the effective date of the relinquishment, Route 183 shall cease to be a state highway.
(3) The entirety of Route 183 relinquished under this section shall be ineligible for future adoption under Section 81.
