U.S. Transportation Secretary, Anthony Foxx, is hitting the road to rally support for one of President Barack Obama’s major budget initiatives.  The so-called Grow America Act puts nearly half a trillion dollars into infrastructure projects over the next six years.

Foxx began a four-day, five-state bus tour Tuesday at the Tallahassee regional Airport.  He’s working to highlight infrastructure projects that would benefit from Obama’s transportation budget proposal.  In Tallahassee, he pointed to a project to expand Capital Circle Southwest from two lanes to six.
