CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB) -

Two grants totaling more than $570,000 will help Cleveland fund the Ocoee Greenway Connector Project and replace the roof of the Cleveland Community Center.

Cleveland will receive a $495,978 transportation alternative grant for the Ocoee Greenway Connector Project.

The project will create a ten-foot wide, ADA-accessible concrete path parallel to South Mouse Creek and along Fillauer Branch before ending at Ocoee Street.

New sidewalks and pedestrian crossing improvements at the Ocoee Street/Blythe Ferry Road intersection will connect to the existing Ocoee Street sidewalk system.

"Through these grants, the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has funded more than $294 million in non-traditional transportation projects," Commissioner John Schroer said.

The second project, is funded by a $75,000 Clean Tennessee Energy grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation and will replace the Cleveland Community Center's existing roof with an energy-efficient thermoplastic polyolefin membrane roof.
