WASHINGTON - U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx today announced the immediate availability of $1 million in federal emergency relief funds to South Carolina to replace the 78-year-old Cypress Gardens Road Bridge in Moncks Corner, S.C. that collapsed Monday when a freight train struck the bridge and derailed.

Wrapping up the “Invest in America, Commit to the Future” bus tour in Texas

This morning, our bus pulled up to its second-to-last stop: Garland, Texas, a city of about 200,000 outside Dallas.  

If you’ve been following along with our tour, you know that, at previous stops, my team and I have disembarked the bus to see infrastructure projects underway – highways, bridges, transit lines – all things that are helping improve lives and promote commerce. 

But I wasn’t in Garland to see anything, so to speak.  And that’s because there isn’t funding to build it.

Shreveport’s I-49 North project to expand economic growth in the region and across the country

Yesterday’s leg of my “Invest in America, Commit to the Future” bus tour ended with a visit to the site of the I-49 North Segment K project currently under way in Shreveport, Louisiana.

A 19-mile segment opened last year, and construction workers are now completing the final mile of a 10-mile segment of the project, which is slated to open in May. 

It’s a remarkable effort, one eight years in the making.  And it’s going to make a huge difference – not just in the lives of the folks who live near there, but folks throughout the nation.
