Alternative transportation grant gives Cleveland opportunity to enhance community
The city of Cleveland has received a grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation to fund the 25th Street Corridor Area Multi-Modal Project.
The Transportation Alternative Grant is worth $674,190.
The project is made up of several components including construction and reconstruction of sidewalks along 25th Street (SR-60) from Peerless Road to Keith Street (SR-2) and along Peerless Road from 25th Street (SR-60) to the Bradley County Nursing Home. There will also be landscaping, striping, curb and gutter, guardrail, ADA upgrades, pedestrian amenities and a bus stop.
“The city of Cleveland is committed to providing safe pedestrian and bicyclist facilities for its residents and linking critical economic, residential, and recreational areas,” TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said. “Projects like this enhance the lives of Tennesseans and make our communities more livable. I’m pleased the state can assist.”
