Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that the City of Clinton has received $2.7 million to reconstruct 1.77 miles of Camanche Avenue/Highways 30 & 67.  The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s TIGER grant program.   Loebsack wrote a letter in support of this project and his office also met with the Department of Transportation together with the City to discuss the application.

“This announcement is great news for the people of Clinton and their efforts to revitalize the river area, which brings with it continued economic growth,” said Loebsack.  “I had the opportunity to meet with community leaders about the importance of this project and was happy to support the proposal.  I am excited to see the improvements that will be made and the valuable local jobs that will be created.”

Wow! $2.7 million for less than 2 miles?

Man, does this seem excessive. This is about $300 per foot! Sure, its a grant, but its a federal grant. Where does that money come from? Taxpayers? Quit spending!
