Grant Funds Installation of Sidewalk along Stretch of Cascade Ave.

Calendar Event Date: 
Thu. October 19th, 2017 - 08:00am

Thanks to a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) we are installing curb and gutter, new sidewalk and making improvements to the bus stops along Cascade Avenue between Winters Drive and Shangra La.  This is part of a larger effort by Mountain Metro Transit to provide pedestrian access from Fillmore Road to Winters Drive along Cascade.

This is certainly welcome as the majority of Cascade does not have sidewalk and this will provide better access to pedestrians and to people with disabilities. CDBG funds can be used to improve public facilities and infrastructure in low-to-moderate income areas and to remove barriers to increase accessibility, such as adding sidewalks and curb ramps.
