Details are expected to be firmed up today on a third round of the TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) competitive grant program, which funds transportation projects that will create jobs and have a significant impact on the nation, a region or a metropolitan area.

$527 million is expected to be available this time around. If you remember back, it was the first round of TIGER funds in 2009 that provided $35 million for the North Spokane Corridor, to construct the southbound lanes from Francis Avenue to Farwell Road.
