Russellville has been awarded a transportation alternative grant by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) Central District.
The $116,484 grant funds will be used for sidewalk improvements on Route C, Smith Street and Marion Street to provide improved access to the elementary and middle schools.
The sidewalk will improve safety for children who walk to school.
The grant-funded project continues the sidewalk and pedestrian access improvements Russellville made in recent years with a new sidewalk from the elementary/middle school to downtown and a safety crossing with two traffic signals on Route C, funded by another transportation grant of nearly $250,000.
MoDOT’s Central District awarded $4 million in grants to 14 projects from among 32 requests.
