WASHINGTON. (WCAX) - More than $34 million in grant money will pave the way for new infrastructure in Vermont.

Vermont’s congressional delegation said in a statement that the U.S. Department of Transportation gave three grants focused on three projects. Those include replacing the Winooski River Bridge, construction of the Federal Street Multi-Modal Connector in St. Albans and a planning grant to improve public transit in northwestern Vermont.

Sens. Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders say the projects will improve the lives of tens of thousands of Vermonters and upgrade public transit, sidewalks and bike lanes.

Congressman Peter Welch says the work will alleviate congestion and create new opportunities for people to bike or walk.
