$24 Million in TIGER Grants for Sound Transit

From Sound Transit:

The money from federal TIGER funds will be used to add HOV lanes in both directions on the Interstate 90 floating bridge. This is so light rail can be run down the center lanes of the bridge.

Also, money will be used to double-track the existing Milwaukee Road trestle in Tacoma as part of the Point Defiance Bypass project.

Great news for transportation in our state.
