The PRSC has released the preliminary list of projects that will receive FTA grants from the stimulus bill in our area. Here’s a map of the projects, and here’s the pdf of the list. There’s a lot of money for new buses, $1 million for the monorail (!!!) and even $341,000 for preventative maintence on the SLU streetcar. There’s $4.6 million for North Link acceleration and $4.6 million for track and signals on the M street to Lakewood line that Sounder and Amtrak want to install as part of the Point Defiance Bypass.
Funding by agency and project below the fold.
I apologize for the ugly tables.

# Funding assigned to the Burien TOD assumes funding in the amount of $3 million in additional ARRA funds to fully fund this project. If additional funding is not secured King County Metro will allocate the funding assigned to the Burien TOD project to its number two priority project the Acquisition of 40ft & 60 ft Hybrid Buses.
* ST has accepted the responsibility for the STE UZA transit enhancement requirements. The Mountlake Terrace Freeway Station project has Transit Enhancement elements.
** WSF will program all of STE UZA’s ARRA FTA Fixed Guideway Funds, at $6.7 million, and $1.8 million in FTA 5307 funds, for the $8.5 M shown. The 5307 and fixed guideway funds will both be programed to the two WSF projects shown.
Here’s the breakdown of funding by transit agency. Keep in mind the amounts here were decided by a formula created by the FTA in DC. This formal is special to the stimulus cash, and has never been used before.
