Buena Vista Set to Receive Transportation Alternatives Grant

The Commonwealth Transportation Board has announced their tentative awards for the FY18 Transportation Alternatives (TA) program.
Administered by VDOT, TA funds bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and Safe Routes to School projects. Tentative grant recipients include the City of Buena Vista. Buena Vista requested funding for two projects: sidewalks and streetscaping on Magnolia Avenue (US 501), and the construction of a paved, shareduse path under the Rte. 60 bridge linking the city’s existing sidewalk network and the Chessie Trail. The Commonwealth Transportation Board will make the grant awards final at their June 2017 meeting. The CSPDC assisted with and provided letters of support for projects in three communities this year: the Town of Bridgewater, the City of Buena Vista, and the City of Waynesboro.
