Agencies behind Doyle Drive rebuild recognized for outreach to small business

The two public agencies behind the massive overhaul of Doyle Drive have been recognized by the federal government for their excellence in finding project work for local and small businesses.

The San Francisco County Transportation Authority, a local planning and funding agency, and Caltrans, the state’s transportation department, recently awarded local small-business owner Julie Berry a $2.95 million contract as part of the $1.01 billion rebuild of Doyle Drive.

The Federal Highway Administration took note of that contract and asked Berry to speak at its annual civil-rights training symposium. Berry’s lecture at the conference, which will be held on Tuesday, will focus on fostering a better relationship between the government and small businesses.

Of the contracts rewarded so far for the Doyle Drive project, nearly 18 percent of the funding has gone toward small businesses, according to Jose Luis Moscovich, executive director of the SFCTA.
