Clemson to share in federal Safe Streets and Roads grants

The secretary for U-S Transportation, Pete Buttigieg, labels $810 million in grant awards for 510 projects historic.  The breakdown of the monies to address high-crash sites will reflect money for the city of Clemson, where motorists often complain about highway 123 backups, some of which are caused by car accidents.  The Biden-Harris administration says the infrastructure funding results from bi-partisan actions.  Clemson, Aiken, Rock Hill, Batesburg, Myrtle Beach and the Low Country Council of Governments are getting money over a period of five years to re-design roads and lay better sidewalks and crosswalks.  The aim being prevent deaths and serious injuries. The next funding opportunity of $1.1 billion is expected to be released in April.
