USF gets $4.9M traffic grant

July 31, 2020 - The U.S. Department of Transportation awarded a $4.9 million grant to University of South Florida to research and reduce traffic congestion. The award was announced by Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, on Thursday. 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. The U.S. DOT granted USF $7.5 million last year to establish the center. “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,” Crist said in a news release.
