SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx traveled to Puerto Rico to help announce the construction of a $16 million thoroughfare project in the U.S. territory.
The thoroughfare is expected to link Puerto Rico’s upcoming $196 million cancer treatment center with a future high-tech business park. It also will connect to the island’s existing Medical Center, a conglomerate of health institutions in the capital of San Juan.
Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla said the project’s first phase will create some 150 jobs and will be completed by 2016.
Foxx also took the opportunity during the press conference to once again call on Congress to refill the Highway Trust Fund, noting it would soon start bouncing checks and warning that thousands of projects could be in jeopardy. The fund is financed by gasoline taxes.
