Senate Bill 1, the Department has identified 10 projects that will enable the Department to
upgrade Department-owned, publicly accessible facilities with Electric vehicle (EV)
infrastructure. These projects will upgrade 37 existing facilities, including 29 Safety Roadside
Rest Areas, four Maintenance stations, two District offices and one Park and Ride lot.
Improvements will upgrade electrical systems, construct charging station pads, purchase and
install EV chargers, complete environmental analysis, provide traffic control, complete
earthwork and trenching, provide asphalt and concrete work, ensure accessibility under the
Americans with Disabilities Act, and install signage and charging station striping. The project
locations are on priority highway corridors consistent with California Energy Commission
guidance, such as Interstates 5, 15 and 80, State Route 99, and U.S. Highways 101 and 395...
