FAIRFIELD - A slew of projects makes the state Department of Transportation a big winner in the eyes of the Solano Transportation Authority.

Caltrans is renovating deteriorated Interstate 80 pavement that has jolted drivers for years. It is building a truck climbing lane on Highway 12 in Jameson Canyon and I-80 carpool lanes. It has made Highway 12 safety improvements between Rio Vista and Suisun City.

The agency got its due from the 11th annual STA awards, handed out in Rio Vista Nov. 12. It won awards for project delivery of the year and partner of the year.
