USDOT TIGER III Grant Awards Announced (updated Wednesday 5pm ET)

A number of TIGER III grant announcements are leaking out in advance of the official USDOT announcement.  USDOT is required by law to notify Senate and House Appropriations Committee Members three days prior to a USDOT announcement.  In many cases, those early announcements leak out before USDOT can make its announcement, which is most likely to occur Thursday morning.  Note: e-newsletter subscribers will receive the complete list of awards soon.  See the green box at right to sign up.

Below are the awards leaked so far. I’ll be updating this story on the website as more awards are revealed. If you know of an award please contact me and I’ll add it.
