New Orleans Canal Street Ferry Gets TIGER Grant

"In this round of TIGER, we selected projects that focus on where the country's transportation infrastructure needs to be in the future: ever safer, ever more innovative, and ever more targeted to open the floodgates of opportunity across America," said Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced that the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority has been awarded a $10 million TIGER grant to replace and modernize the terminal at the New Orleans Canal Street Ferry. The project is one of 39 projects in 34 states that were selected to receive a total of $500 million under the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery program.

The department received 627 applications from 50 states.

"Transportation is always about the future. If we're just fixing today's problems, we'll fall further and further behind. We already know that a growing population and increasing freight traffic will require our system to do more," said Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. "In this round of TIGER, we selected projects that focus on where the country's transportation infrastructure needs to be in the future: ever safer, ever more innovative, and ever more targeted to open the floodgates of opportunity across America."

The New Orleans project will replace the existing terminal with a smaller and more modern facility, as well as close the gap in the Riverfront promenade caused by the current configuration. The goal is to improve safety for passengers by making it easier to move around.
