U.S. Transportation Secretary Rodney E. Slater today said that the District of Columbia will receive $4.4 million in Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) discretionary funds.

"President Clinton and Vice President Gore recognize the need for continued strategic investment that will improve America’s transportation system," Secretary Slater said. "This funding will strengthen our transportation system, create jobs in the District of Columbia, and yield significant dividends in terms of safety, mobility and economic growth."

The District received the $4.4 million for three projects under the Public Lands Highways category. Public Lands Highways grants provide funds for the construction of highways on public lands such as national parks.

FHWA discretionary funds are made available upon selection by the Secretary of Transportation after requests from states for funds for projects that meet criteria established by federal law and U.S. Department of Transportation regulations and procedures. Congress also makes decisions on some grants.

Further information about the projects is on the Internet at www.fhwa.dot.gov .
