Roads to Beale gain priority
Caltrans seeking federal funds for repairs
Rob Young

Repairing roads around Beale Air Force Base has been made a priority by
the California Department of Transportation, a Yuba County official said

Repairing the roads, counted among the worst of any around the country's
military bases, is seen as a key to retaining Beale. Area officials fear
Beale may be included in the next round of base closures in 2005.

Kevin Mallen, Yuba County public works director, told the Beale Military
Base Retention Committee that Caltrans is recommending that Federal
Highway Administration funds be used for the repairs. The county, not
the state, owns the roads, but Caltrans can influence how the federal
dollars are spent, Mallen said.

Repairs would cost an estimated $10 million. Congress has tentatively
earmarked $1 million for the project during the current fiscal year,
Mallen said. The remaining $9 million is still "up in the air," he said.
