Around 1,000 applications came pouring in to the U.S. Dept. of Transportation seeking TIGER II grants. If all projects were funded, it would add up to 19 billion dollars.
Progressive Railroading quotes DOT Secretary Ray LaHood:
"The wave of applications for both TIGER II and TIGER I dollars shows the back-log of needed infrastructure improvements and the desire for more flexible funds," said LaHood. "This also shows the opportunities still before us to create jobs, to reduce congestion, make wise environmental choices and help generate lasting economic growth."
Every one of the 50 states submitted at least one request for funding.
