Bill introduced to extend transportation technology grants

Reps. Barbara Comstock (R-VA) and Elizabeth Esty (D-CT) have introduced a bill to provide smart technology grants for transportation projects. The Smart Technology for Resilient, Efficient, Economic and Reliable Transportation in Cities and Communities (STREET) Act builds on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Smart City Challenge grant program that launched in 2015.
The STREET Act would offer communities up to $100 million a year for five years for smart transportation projects.  Grants are available for small- and medium-sized communities.More>>
