Funny…I just this past week openly wondered on the status of this transportation project.
At tonight’s meeting, Decatur’s City Commission will vote on an agreement between the city and the Georgia Department of Transportation for the Clairemont-Commerce-Church Street Pedestrian Safety and Bicycle Trail Improvements. The agreement, which was originally announced way back in November 2011, will provide $2.1 million for the project from the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Livable Centers Initiative program.
The entire C-Streets project is estimated to cost $4.2 million. So where will the rest of the funding come from? A letter from Deputy City Manager Hugh Saxon details the sources…
We anticipate a total construction budget of about $4,162,000 for the project from the following sources:
TE Program 900,000
LCI Program 2,109,000
GO 2007 565,000
Mr. Saxon also projects the project wouldn’t start until 2017.
