Arizona has been awarded $3.4 million in federal discretionary grants for projects that will improve roadways and add infrastructure in seven communities around the state.

The Arizona Department of Transportation oversees the federal funding and the grant process for these local projects. The grants are administered through a reimbursement process.

The seven local projects, all designed to enhance mobility and safety, are aimed at creating jobs and spurring economic growth, while enhancing Arizona’s transportation system.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced that more than $363 million in grants were awarded to fund highway and transportation infrastructure improvement projects nationwide.

Arizona’s seven projects total $3,357,974. A state-by-state list of the Fiscal Year 2012 grants is available at
