CITY AWARDED GRANT TO CONSTRUCT SICARD HOLLOW PEDESTRIAN TUNNEL

CITY AWARDED GRANT TO CONSTRUCT SICARD HOLLOW PEDESTRIAN TUNNEL I am pleased to announce that the City has received a grant to build a pedestrian tunnel connecting Liberty Park Sports Complex and Sicard Hollow Athletic Complex.  The award o…f $378,966 is through the Federal Transportation Alternatives Program.  The Sicard Hollow Road Tunnel Safe Route will provide a much needed pedestrian connection between the two parks and between the community and schools on the Liberty Park side to the recreational opportunities at Sicard Hollow Athletic Complex.  Two great benefits of this project will be that vehicular traffic between the parks should be reduced, and our young residents who are able to walk to the parks may participate in activities without waiting for a ride.  We are very excited about this award, which has accelerated the Sicard Hollow Road Tunnel Safe Route from being a long-range plan to a near-future reality.  -Jeff Downes, City Manager
