Accountable. Efficient. Effective.

Your Placer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA)


“As a resident of Placer County, I know the challenges we face with our aging infrastructure. State funding is shrinking while our roads are left in disrepair. I believe that PCTPA will deliver on its promises to build projects, improve our roads and ensure that our tax dollars are spent wisely.”

~ C.C. Myers, Legendary Freeway Construction Expert


PCTPA’s nine board members are comprised of local City Council members and Placer County Supervisors and one member of the public who collectively provide balanced representation for all citizens of Placer County.

More than 99% of the current funds controlled by PCTPA are spent directly on transportation projects. The agency manages the entire regional transportation system with only 7 full-time employees. PCTPA has virtually no overhead.

PCTPA has leveraged existing, limited resources to attract matching funds to complete these successful projects…
