By: Shelby Hagan, City Clerk
Date Published: Friday, February 15, 2019
 

Residents of Greater Des Moines are invited to share their opinions on which local transportation projects they would like to see receive funding from the Des Moines Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). Twenty projects are under consideration, ranging from roadways, bridges and transit buses to trails, safe routes to school and on-street facilities. More than $25 million has been requested from the Surface Transportation Block Grant Program, as well as the Surface Transportation Block Grant Set-Aside Program, which combined have an approximately $13 million in available funding. Both grant programs are funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation and administered by the MPO.
