ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland’s transportation secretary has announced $20.3 million in grants to fund safety improvements for bicyclists and pedestrians across the state.

Transportation Secretary Pete Rahn says in a Wednesday statement that three state and federal programs will provide grants for 43 projects.

The statement says nearly $18 million in federal funding is from the Transportation Alternatives Program, which is designed to boost projects for walking and bicycling access. Some $2.1 million in state funds comes from the Maryland Bikeways Program.

Rahn says the grants will expand options “for people of all ages as part of Maryland’s balanced transportation network.”
