The Teton Mobility Corridor Improvements (TMCI) project was awarded $ million in federal BUILD (Better Utilizing Investments) to Leverage) grant funding on Wednesday, September 16, 2020.
The TMCI is a collaborative group of public, private and nonprofit sector organizations, spanning both sides of the Tetons, with Teton County as the lead application to develop the project.
The grant addresses long-standing transportation needs of area residents and visitors and will improve mobility and public safety along the congested ID-33/WY-22 corridor.
TMCI Project will provide improved travel choices and connections for transit, an expanded pathway system, and safer highways for all travelers.
The project will cost $28 million, of which $20 million will be contributed by the Federal BUILD grant.
The balance of $8 million will be provided by the project partners as a matter of cash and in-kind contributions, with the largest match contribution from the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) and Teton County.
