State Senator Kerry Roberts (R-Springfield) recently announced that Ashland City will receive a $948,860 multimodal access grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT). The grant will fund improvements to SR-12 from Chestnut St. to Forrest St and will include the construction of sidewalks and crosswalks.
“These funds will help to improve our efforts to make Ashland City’s streets, sidewalks and crosswalks safer,” said Sen. Roberts. “I was very pleased to support this sizable grant and appreciate TDOT for recognizing the need and congratulate our local officials who helped secure a successful grant application.”
TDOT’s Multimodal Access Grant is a state-funded program created to support the transportation needs of pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users through infrastructure projects that address existing gaps along state routes. Multimodal facilities play an important role in providing transportation choices for people across Tennessee. With half of all trips in the United States being three miles or less, good walking, biking and transit facilities are essential to the continued growth and success of our towns and cities.
Multimodal Access Grant projects are state-funded at 95 percent with a 5 percent local match.
