Several Counties Receive Funds from Federal Grant to Address Road Safety

Safe Streets and Roads for All Grant Program provides a record amount of funding to improve roads and address traffic fatalities, with several Maryland counties as recipients.

The competitive grant program provides $5 billion over five years for regional, local, and Tribal initiatives — from redesigned roads to better sidewalks and crosswalks — to prevent deaths and serious injuries on the nation’s roadways. The U.S. Department of Transportation is awarding 473 action plan grants and 37 grants for implementation projects in this first round of the program.
