STATE APPROVES FUNDING FOR TRAIL PROJECT

The City has received approval from the State for $301,600 in funding for the Cavett Connector Trail project in south Lincoln. The project will connect the Tierra/Williamsburg Trail that ends near San Mateo Dr. with the Yankee Hill Trail near 34th and Yankee Hill Rd. It also includes a connection to Cavett Elementary. The Tierra/Williamsburg trail now connects to the SouthPointe Trail as well as the Rock Island and Boosalis Trails.

The funding is from the Transportation Enhancement Program administered by the State Department of Roads. The projected cost of the project is $377,000, with the remaining $75,400 coming from City impact fees. Construction is expected to begin in 2010.
