On Monday (Feb. 18), the U.S. Department of Transportation announced $12.5 million in grants for 29 projects in 20 states to improve access to America’s national parks, forests and wildlife refuges. The selected projects will help reduce traffic congestion and make it easier for millions of visitors to enjoy the nation’s scenic federal lands, according to a news release.

The funds are provided through the Federal Transit Administration’s Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks program, which awarded $40.8 million for similar projects in January 2012.
