OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The U.S. Commerce Department is awarding almost $4.6 million in grants for infrastructure improvements in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Clinton and Shawnee.

The grants support diverse communities within the state, including the Potawatomi Nation, communities affected by recent natural disasters and larger cities looking to support and attract businesses.

The investments include a $1.2 million grant to the Potawatomi Nation for rail infrastructure critical to development of the Iron Horse Industrial Park in Shawnee.

In Oklahoma City, a $1 million grant to the Oklahoma City Redevelopment Authority will help fund street improvements that will improve access and add streetscape beautification to serve the western gateway into the University of Oklahoma Health Center and bioscience campus.

And a $950,000 grant to Tulsa County will support construction of roadway improvements to support businesses.
