Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam announces transportation grant for Ducktown

Ducktown, Tenn., will get a $256,791 transportation grant that will allow the community to replace sidewalks and install new street lighting, landscaping and crosswalks at the intersection of Main Street and State Route 68.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer made the announcement.

A news release said these improvements are part of the first of a two-phase project to rehabilitate Main Street in Ducktown.

“This project will improve safety and mobility for pedestrians while also promoting the redevelopment of downtown Ducktown,” Haslam said. “Tennessee’s downtowns are the heart of our communities, and projects such as this help strengthen the livability of our communities and the quality of life for residents.”

The release said the “transportation alternative grant is made possible through a federally-funded program formerly known as transportation enhancement and is administered by TDOT.”
