November 21st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Officials with the Iowa Transportation Commission said Wednesday, the Commission recently approved the fiscal year 2014 Traffic Safety Improvement Program projects. More than $9.7 million in safety improvements were approved for 50 projects.

In the KJAN listening area, a base widening, shoulder paving w/rumble strips, safety edge and resurfacing project in Crawford County, was approved for a requested $500,000 grant. The project is expected to cost nearly $1.3million. And, in Ringgold County, a Posted Bridge Public Awareness Program was approved for $37,080 in grant funds, which was also the amount requested and the projected cost of the project.

If the total project amount was greater than the grant amount, the recipient of the grants would be responsible to provide additional funding.
