Tiger II Grants Announced

The U.S. Department of Transportation today announced the availability of $600 million in new funding for surface transportation projects.

From the press release:

"'The enormous number of applications we received for the first round of TIGER grants shows that we have a backlog of worthwhile transportation projects waiting for funding,' said Secretary LaHood. 'This money will go to the kinds of projects that will help spur lasting economic growth, reduce gridlock, provide safe, affordable and environmentally sustainable transportation choices and create jobs.'
