Details of DC’s TIGER win

By now most readers are probably aware that the DC region was awarded a TIGER grant today by the federal government. We got $58.8 million out of an original package that included over $200 million in requests. That sounds like a disapointment, but actually it’s a huge win for the region. Competition was extremely tight, and we got more than most.

The table below lists how much we requested and how much we actually got for each of the component projects. Click a project name or scroll below the table for a brief description of each of the winning projects.
