Congressman Cole Includes Funds for Interchange at Milepost One in Highway Bill
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole was able to secure $2 million for improvements at I-35 Interchange at milepost one in Love County in the Transportation Reauthorization bill that passed in the House today. The Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (H.R. 3) now awaits action by the Senate.
"These funds will help alleviate safety and traffic impediments for the highly traveled area near the Texas border in Love County. I will continue to work to make sure these funds are included in the final version of the legislation. I hope that this bill will move quickly through the rest of the legislative process, so work can begin as soon as possible," Congressman Cole said.
This project is part of a two-year effort, which has already begun, to resurface a portion of I-35 from the Oklahoma state line and north eight miles. Congressman Cole has secured $2 million in previous transportation spending bills for this project.
Congressman Cole was able to include $16 million for priority projects in Oklahoma's Fourth Congressional District in The Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (H.R. 3).
