About these funds
Almost everyone can point to an improvement they'd like to see on a roadway or street, a trail connection or sidewalk gap they'd like to see filled.
Every few years, Metro has an opportunity to help make those projects happen with something called "regional flexible funds" – money from the federal government that can be used for a wide range of transportation projects.
It isn't enough money to build every community's priority, but it can help with crucial gaps and long-awaited fixes.
