$47 Million Federal (INFRA) Grant Awarded to I-5 Project Congressman Knight secures Department of Tr

Representative Steve Knight (R-CA) announced last night, after a conversation with U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, that the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will receive a $47 million Infrastructure For Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant to relieve the traffic congestion in Santa Clarita on the I-5.

“Santa Clarita and the entire region will benefit enormously from this grant which will address the endless traffic backups on Interstate 5. Anyone who lives or travels through the Santa Clarita Valley deals with this congestion on a daily basis. It impacts every vehicle traveling through or around Santa Clarita and throughout Southern California. This funding is a huge step in providing relief to everyone living and doing business in this region,” said Rep. Knight “Working with the Department of Transportation and a team of local leaders to secure this grant has been a top priority of mine for many months. I am so pleased to have spoken with Secretary Chao this afternoon and to learn that she and the Department of Transportation fully understand and support the need for this project and the relief it will provide for our region as a whole”.
