WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) today applauded the Federal Transit Administration’s announcement that it has awarded $50.8 million in Capital Investment Grant funding to the Kansas City Streetcar Main Street Extension project.

“Kansas City is a great place to live and work, and has tremendous potential for growth in the years ahead,” said Blunt. “Extending the KC Streetcar will boost economic development and provide reliable, no-cost transportation to more people in the region. I’ve been glad to join my congressional colleagues in advocating for this project on the federal level. I look forward to continuing to work with them and in partnership with the KC Streetcar Authority, KC Area Transportation Authority, Mayor Lucas, and local stakeholders to move this project forward.”
