A brick street restoration project on New York Street and a pedestrian-bicycle path on Clinton Parkway will receive federal stimulus funding, officials said Tuesday.
The projects, along with two in Franklin County, were among the 14 selected by the Kansas Department of Transportation for inclusion in the Transportation Enhancement Program and made possible by the federal stimulus package.
“The Transportation Enhancement program provides federal highway funds for projects that strengthen the cultural, aesthetic or environmental value of our transportation system,” said KDOT Secretary Deb Miller.
These area projects were selected from more than 100 applicants:
• Restoration of the brick street on New York from Ninth to 12th streets.
• Pedestrian-bicycle path on Clinton Parkway from Wakarusa Drive to K-10.
• Rehabilitation of six Midland Railway Line timber railroad trestles between Montana Road and Pawnee Road in Franklin County.
• Lighting enhancements along the Prairie Spirit Rail Trail between Fifth and 23rd streets in Ottawa.
