Mayor Andy Cook joined Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and other elected officials on Sept. 16 for an announcement about the future development of regional mass transit. Rep. André Carson (IN-7) recently announced Central Indiana had received a $2 million TIGER grant.

The grant will be used to assist IndyGo and the City of Indianapolis with the next phases of development, environmental analysis and preliminary engineering for the city’s Red Line, which is proposed to run from Westfield’s Grand Park through downtown Indianapolis to Old Town Greenwood.

“As the City of Westfield continues to grow, important projects such as the Red Line will provide our residents with increased access to transportation, and allow our community to engage in regional economic development in ways we have not yet realized,” Cook said. “We are excited to be partners in this transit initiative.”

TIGER grants began in 2009 to help cities invest in road, rail, transit and port projects that promise to achieve national objectives. For more information, visit www.dot.gov/tiger.
