The San Diego Association of Governments says federal stimulus spending on infrastructure — recently projected to be potentially hundreds of billions — will amount to $40 billion of the $825 billion federal stimulus plan unveiled today.
That’s $30 billion for highway infrastructure nationwide and $10.1 billion for transit.
Gary Gallegos, Sandag’s executive director, said San Diego County might qualify for about 1 percent of that funding. If that happens, San Diego would nab about $400 million — much, much less than the $7.4 billion wish list Sandag had put together.
