St. Petersburg, FL – U.S. Representative Charlie Crist (D-FL) announced a $4,887,500 grant to the University of South Florida (USF) from the U.S. Department of Transportation to research and reduce traffic congestion. USF is the lead university in the National Institute for Congestion Reduction program and is home to the only center focused on traffic congestion relief in the nation.
“Traffic in our region calls for the best and brightest minds coming up with new and creative solutions. This is not just about quality of life and productivity, increased traffic stresses roads and worsens pollution,” said Rep. Crist. “On behalf of the Department of Transportation, I am excited to share news of this grant with USF and look forward to seeing all that our Bulls can accomplish for the people!”
