KANSAS CITY — The Kansas City area will receive about $50 million to make infrastructure improvements.

Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced the stimulus funding Wednesday in Kansas City. Several other states will also be receiving funding for transportation projects.

The Kansas City projects aim at improving infrastructure in a 150-block area in the urban core. The portion of the funds awarded to neighboring Kansas City, Kan., will go toward improving major transit corridors.

The grants are intended to spur a national competition for innovative transportation projects. The department said it received more than 1,400 applications requesting funding for almost $60 billion worth of projects.
