U.S. Transportation Secretary Slater Announces $708,600 for Tennessee in Highway Discretionary Funds

Federal Highway Administration

FHWA 75-00

U.S. Transportation Secretary Rodney E. Slater today said that Tennessee will receive $708,600 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 Tennessee, and yield significant dividends in terms of safety, mobility and economic growth."

Two grants were provided to Tennessee in the National Scenic Byways category. National scenic byways are outstanding roads through areas recognized for their special historic, cultural, natural, or other qualities. Under the National Scenic Byways Program, the states and byways use the funds to develop and implement corridor management plans, construct scenic byway facilities (such as overlooks, interpretative centers, signs and exhibits), develop interpretative brochures, maps and information, and promote scenic byways.

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.
