U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan today announced nearly $37 million in disaster recovery aid to the City of Moore, Oklahoma and to the State of Oklahoma to help local communities recover from a devastating spate of storms, including a powerful tornado that struck Moore on May 20th.
The City of Moore, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is proposing a railroad bridge underpass on S.E. 4th Street (SH-37) at the BNSF Railway (BNSF). The purpose of the project is to improve safety and reduce time delays caused by the existing BNSF at-grade railroad crossing within the City of Moore on S.E. 4th Street (SH-37). The City of Moore is seeking funding through the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant (TIGER grant) with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). More information on the TIGER grant will be provided at the public meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to present alternatives considered, environmental constraints and obtain public input to aid the City of Moore in moving forward with the environmental document and preliminary design.
