Portland has applied for $44.5 million in federal grants – one of the many cities competing for a piece of the $1.5 billion offered by the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant program.

The Portland Bureau of Transportation is seeking TIGER grant money to develop three projects: improvements to Southwest Moody Avenue, Southeast Water Avenue and a portion of Southwest Fourth Avenue. The projects would cost a total of $73 million, and would support the development of links between educational facilities in downtown.

“We know this is going to be a very competitive process,” PBOT Project Manager Art Pearce said. “That’s why we chose to frame this around development.”
