From the Lynnwood Times:
Today, Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) announced that northwest Washington will receive $69 million to fund three transportation projects in King, Snohomish, and Whatcom Counties. These projects include:
|Bothell Way NE Multimodal Improvements||Bothell||$19 million|
|Poplar Way Bridge||Lynnwood||$25 million|
|Lummi Island Ferry Replacement and System Modernization Project||Whatcom County||$25 million|
The projects are being awarded Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity Discretionary (RAISE) grants, which invest in critical road, rail, transit, and port projects across the country. The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act was signed into law in November 2021 with DelBene’s support and increased funding for RAISE grants to $7.5 billion.
“These much-needed resources will provide better and safer ways for Washingtonians to connect to their jobs, communities, and loved ones,” said DelBene. “Securing this $69 million is a direct result of the bipartisan infrastructure law that I championed and represents a critical collaboration with our local officials to improve our region’s transportation networks.”
