Ranking Member Larsen Applauds Funding for Safer Streets, Thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Washington, D.C.— Today, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Rick Larsen (D-WA) issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced over $817 million in funding for this year’s second round of Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) grants.

“Today’s funding helps advance 385 projects making roadways across the country safer and more accessible for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers,” Ranking Member Larsen said. “In my district, funding will help Skagit County, the City of Anacortes, and the Lummi Indian Tribal Community develop comprehensive safety action plans that will protect and improve lives. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law continues to create jobs by building cleaner, greener, safer, and more accessible transportation across the country.”

The Safer Streets and Roads For All grant program provides communities across the country with funding to prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries. The first round of grant awards was announced on October 27.
