Dallas Transportation Project

The Recovery Act project in Dallas is putting people to work and making the vital transportation investments that are needed for sustained growth and increased mobility. A $61.2 million grant will be used to connect Dallas, the thriving Las Colinas Urban Center (LCUC) in the nearby city of Irving, and ultimately DFW International Airport. More than 80 contractors, based in 14 states, will employ workers to bring this project to completion.
