Late last week, nearly thirty transportation grants were awarded by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) through its Nationally Significant Freight and Highway Projects program, which was established in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act of 2015.

The Nationally Significant Freight and Highway Projects program is now called the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) program, with the program’s chief objective to make needed investments is critical freight and highway needs.
