The Board of Aldermen on Monday night delayed voting on the $16 million federal TIGER II grant to revamp the Route 34 corridor over concerns that the city would have to kick in $7 million toward the project.

More on the project:

In recent months, New Haven has received a TIGER II grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The $16 million grant, out of a requested $21 million, will underwrite a $31 million project to convert Route 34 into a series of multimodal boulevards. The TIGER grants are proving instrumental in achieving “Complete Streets,” a nationwide and increasingly bipartisan effort to create more livable streets that accommodate walkers, joggers and bicyclists.
