Stabenow, Peters Announce Over $1 Million in Federal Grants for West and Southwest Michigan Communities to Develop Safety Plans to Prevent Roadway Deaths and Serious InjuriesThursday, February 02, 2023
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (MI) and Gary Peters (MI) today announced more than $1 million in federal grants for West and Southwest Michigan communities to improve roadway safety by developing comprehensive safety action plans. The funding awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Safe Streets and Roads for All grant program is made possible through the bipartisan infrastructure law that Stabenow and Peters helped enact into law. The Safe Streets and Roads for All program funds regional and local road safety projects and strategies that will help prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries.
“This investment will help our local communities use their resources more effectively and make our roads safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers by focusing improvements in areas with high fatalities and other safety issues. This is another example of how the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is helping our state,” said Senator Stabenow.
“Michiganders deserve to have the peace of mind that their streets and roadways are as safe as possible,” said Senator Peters. “These federal investments will help communities develop safety action plans to help prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries.”

- City of Kalamazoo - $750,000
