McMorris Rodgers Applauds WSDOT Submission of TIGER IV Grant Application for North Spokane Freeway

Spokane, WA- Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) applauded this week’s announcement by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) that they are submitting a Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) IV grant application for the North Spokane Freeway.  Rep. McMorris Rodgers is a strong champion of the Freeway, which, once completed, would connect trade routes throughout Eastern Washington, the region, and Canada, helping farmers and small business owners transport their goods and commodities throughout North America.

 

“The North Spokane Freeway has been – and continues to be – an effective multimodal transportation system that has the potential to create thousands of jobs and bring hundreds of millions of dollars in new tax revenue to our community,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.  “That’s why I applaud WSDOT’s decision to submit a TIGER IV grant application for the Freeway.  This is a big breakthrough in our efforts at the state, local, and federal levels to complete this truly ‘shovel-ready’ project and boost Eastern Washington’s economy.”

 

On Wednesday, Rep. McMorris Rodgers met with Gov. Christine Gregoire, Transportation Secretary Paula Hammond, and state legislators to advocate for the Freeway and other Eastern Washington transportation projects.
