2016 TIGER Grant
The US Department of Transportation TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grant is awarded to communities nationwide on a competitive basis to improve local and regional transportation systems. The City of Meriden has sought funds through the program to implement its Multi-Modal Roadway Improvement Plan in the TOD District which includes construction of surface transportation infrastructure (roadway, pedestrian, and bicycle) in downtown Meriden. The project is a culmination of over a decade of planning and a community consensus around the need to improve roadways, sidewalks and restore two-way traffic in downtown Meriden.
