The final TIGER grant awardees list is here.
Midwestern TIGER recipients include (not exhaustive): Detroit (for construction of light rail on Woodward); Chicago (for a freight train congestion reduction program); Indianapolis (a bicycle and pedestrian network downtown); and Kansas City (to help fund the "Green Impact Zone" that I blogged on recently).
Among St. Louis projects passed over were:
- The Loop Trolley.
- Rebuilding the 22nd Street Interchange downtown (as part of McKee's NorthSide development).
- Unnamed "improvements" in the Chouteau Lake and Greenway project.
- Truck-only lanes for I-70
- A Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) at DeBaliviere and Forest Park Parkway.
Better luck next economic crisis, St. Louis?
UPDATE: Building Blocks Blog has posted a tally of the rejected TIGER projects including their costs here.
