Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer says his team will funnel almost $600,000 in federal funds it administers to help Dickson officials continue their downtown revitalization work. The latest money will go toward upgrades of parts of West College Street and Main Street and will include new pavement and crosswalks, parking areas, signage, street lighting and landscaping, among other things.
The Metropolitan Transit Authority has been approved to receive a $10 million U.S. Department of Transportation grant that will cover more than half of the cost of a project to give buses priority at some of the city's busiest intersections. The money will be used to build out MTA's bus rapid transit plans — which are led by The AMP Saint Thomas-East Nashvile route — as well as build bus shelters, make pedestrian improvements and install real-time bus signs across MTA's network.
The grant is part of a round of funding that will help 52 transportation projects in 37 states deploy $474 million. For more details on the local project, click here. The full list of DOT grants is here.
