FRESNO – The U.S. Department of Transportation is reporting that the City of Fresno will be the recipient of $15,924,620 that could open the downtown area’s Fulton Mall back up to traffic.

The project on Fulton Mall is just one of 52 across the country to receive a piece of a total of $474 million in TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grants from the Department of Transportation.  The mall, built in 1964, initially welcomed vehicular traffic, but has been closed to automobiles for decades.

“These transformational TIGER projects are the best argument for investment in our transportation infrastructure,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx in a release.  ”Together, they support President Obama’s call to ensure a stronger transportation system for future generations by repairing existing infrastructure, connecting people to new jobs and opportunities, and contributing to our nation’s economic growth.”

An official announcement is slated for 1:15 p.m. Friday on the Fulton Mall.
