Washington,
September 10, 2020



Washington, D.C. – Congressman Devin Nunes (CA-22) issued the following statement today on the U.S. Department of Transportation BUILD Grant awarded to the Tulare County Association of Governments’ (TCAG) SR-99/Commercial Ave Interchange project:

“Today’s announcement that Tulare will be awarded a $16 million BUILD grant represents another major upgrade to the Central Valley’s transportation infrastructure. With the Grant, Tulare will be able to construct a new interchange along State Route 99 at Commercial Avenue and Paige Avenue, reducing congestion and generating substantial economic development in our community. I commend the Tulare County Association of Governments for their tireless effort to realize this project, and I thank Secretary Chao and the Trump Administration for prioritizing the Valley’s infrastructure needs.”

TCAG Executive Director Ted Smalley said, “Originally approved in 2006, this project is a vital win for the City of Tulare and Tulare County, and leverages over $26 million in local taxpayer funds. We want to extend our deepest thanks to Congressman Nunes for working to help this project receive the crucial federal investment it needed to be realized.”
