Iowa receiving funds for highway safety


Iowa is receiving some federal funding to help improve highway safety.  Senator Tom Harkin announced Thursday that Iowa Department of Transportation will be getting an extra $302,676  from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

The funds are a part of the U.S. Department of Transportation's "state and community highway grants" to support state highway safety programs. 

"Iowa's highways play and important part in keeping our economy flowing and getting  people where they needs to go quickly, and it is important that people are safe when traveling on these roads.  This funding will provide necessary funds so that IDOT can do its job and keep people safe when driving on Iowa's highways," Harkin said.
