CHINA GROVE ó Residents of sections targeted for new sidewalks can get full details at an information session this evening.
The town will hold an information session from 6 to 9 p.m. at Community Memorial Building, 412 S. Myrtle St.
Detailed information will be available on each street involved in the project.
Officials will be on hand to answer specific questions from landowners about how the project will affect their property.
In some cases, the sidewalks will replace existing sidewalks. In other areas, the sidewalks will go where there are none.
The town is set to receive $762,000 from the federal program aimed at reducing air pollution, Congestion Mitigating and Air Quality (CMAQ).
Former Town Manager Eric Davis began the process of seeking the money for sidewalks several years ago.
Pease, an engineering firm based in Charlotte, is doing the design work and handling the permitting and construction administration.
In January, the Board of Aldermen agreed to fast-track the program, which reduces the town’s share of the designing and permitting costs.
The project is expected to start around Oct. 1, when the new federal fiscal year starts and funds are released.
Here is the list of streets that are included in the project, along with the total linear feet of sidewalks planned in each section.
Section A ó Centerview, Chapel, Blackwelder and Keller, 3,830 feet;
Section B ó Park, Elizabeth and Clinton 5,100 feet;
Section C ó Bostian, 5,500 feet;
Section D ó Stokes and Highland Ridge, 5,200 feet;
Section E ó West Vance, Mitchell, Wilson and Laurel, 6,500 feet;
Section F ó Kirk, 3,300 feet;
Section G ó Washington, Klondale and East Liberty, 2,750 feet.
