Just a heads up that U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood will announce tomorrow the projects that will receive TIGER funding. Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) is a supplementary grant program included under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) from last year. It will provide $1.5 billion for projects. Funding was competitive.
Washington State submitted three projects for possible funding; the North Spokane Corridor, SR 520 in Western Washington, and I-5/SR 500 Interschange in southwest Washington. Here are the details.
I’ll keep you updated when I hear if we got any money.
