CLINTON RECEIVES “TAP” AWARD
Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and TDOT Commissioner Clay Bright announced, this week, the award of more than thirteen million dollars in Transportation Alternatives Grants statewide in Tennessee.
“Tennessee is committed to continuing to develop safe infrastructure across our states,” Lee said. “These grants will help us reach our goal of being a healthier state and will enhance the lives of Tennesseans by making our communities more accessible and livable.”
The transportation alternatives grant is made possible through a federally funded program and is administered by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
The City of Clinton’s “Pedestrian Improvements” project has been selected to receive a TAP Award in the amount of $566,635. More than $140,000 of local cash match construction funds (20% of the award) will be added to the TAP money to complete the project.
The Pedestrian Improvements project will include sidewalk construction that will connect the recreation areas of Clinton to historic downtown Clinton and its retail shops.
Clinton City Manager Roger Houck stated: “I want to extend a special thanks to Tennessee Department of Transportation officials, Governor Bill Lee, Lt. Governor Randy McNally, Representative John Ragan (33rd District).. and of course, Mayor Scott Burton and our City Council members and others.. for helping make this project a reality.”
