General Role and Authority Caltrans : • Covered under various California statutes • Authorities covered primarily under the Streets and Highways Code of California. • ‘Owner/operator’ of state/ interstate highway system. • Caltrans has ultimate jurisdictional responsibility for operating and maintaining the state/interstate routes. California Highway Patrol (CHP)has responsibility and authority for safe travel along state/interstate highways. • As the State level law enforcement body, CHP is also responsible for security on state routes and facilities.
Caltrans - District 4 • Overview: • Encompasses the nine (9) Bay Area • counties: • Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, • Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, • Solano, Sonoma, and Santa Clara • 3,200 employees with an • annual operating budget of $490 M • 7,600 lane miles of highways, • including 420 miles of carpool lanes • Seven toll bridges: • Antioch, Benicia, Carquinez, • Richmond-San Rafael, San Mateo- • Hayward, San Francisco-Oakland and • Dumbarton • San Francisco Bay Area: • Population: 7.4 million • Area: 8,757 sq miles (22,681 sq. km) San Francisco Bay Area

INFRASTRUCTURE INTERDEPENDENCY BASED ON PRIORITIES DURING RECOVERY STRATEGIC RECOVERY PRIORITIES – Start at Lifelines and Critical Facilities. • Traffic Management • Maintenance & Traffic Operations • Route Recovery To Previous Capacity • Planning & Programming • Design • Construction
District 4 - CRITICAL Facilities • 1. San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and approach structures • 2. Carquinez Bridges • 3. Caldecott Tunnels • 4. Presidio Viaduct (Golden Gate Bridge operate) • 5. San Mateo-Hayward Bridge • 6. Richmond-San Rafael Bridge • 7. Martinez-Benicia Bridge • 8. Dumbarton Bridge • 9. Posey and Webster Tubes • 10. Waldo Tunnels • 11. Crystal Springs Bridge • 12. MacArthur Tunnel • 13. Highway 92/280 Tunnel • 14. Interstate 280/680 and US 101 Distribution Structure • 15. Interstate 80/580/880 - Distribution Structure • 16. Interstate 580/980 and Route 24 - Distribution Structure • 17. Interstate 680 and Route 24 - Distribution Structure • 18. Antioch Bridge
CALTRANS CORE FUNCTIONS & KEY INTERDEPENDENCIES • DESIGN • IT • Power, Water, Sewer Recovery Starts Here ! • CONSTRUCTION • Fuels • Communications • Contractors & Suppliers • PLANNING • & PROGRAMMING • IT • Power, Water, Sewer $ • MAINTENANCE • Fuels • Communications • Suppliers • OPERATIONS • IT • Communications • Power, Water, Sewer
INTERDEPENDENCY CHALLENGES • EXAMPLES OF ADDRESSING CHALLENGES: • State Bulk fuel contracts with flexibility by contract providers to deliver fuel on site. • Alternate emergency power systems capability at key facilities • Onsite generators • Ability to ‘hook-up’ portable generator units • Operational Redundancy of Transportation Management Centers (TMC). • Other Districts are structured to handle Programming, Planning and Design functions if required. • Multiple communications systems for operational communications • Satellite (video/teleconference capabilities) • Microwave • 800 MHZ system with extensive redundancy
Transportation Management Center (TMC) • Built in 1996 and operational 24/7 • Jointly staffed by Caltrans, CHP, and MTC/511 • Aggressively monitors and rapidly deploys available traffic management and motorist information services. • Enhances communication among stakeholders. • Minimizes traffic congestion due to incidents, planned highway work, and major special events.
INTERDEPENDENCY CHALLENGES • CONTINUING CHALLENGES: • Further coordination with contractors, suppliers, and essential service providers on planning strategies to mitigate and/or address their interdependencies. • Expanding IT redundancy • Minimal funding beyond operational needs. • STRATEGIES TO ADDRESS CHALLENGES: • Working partnerships with the business community, exploring interdependencies, in order to arrive at ‘best practices’ to mitigate and/or address their interdependencies • Legislation recognizing need for funding for redundancy of operational capabilities and for mitigation of infrastructure interdependencies.
