CMAQ Grant Awarded to City of Milan

A federal grant recently awarded to the City of Milan will provide welcome relief to parents and students near Milan High School and Clayton Symons Elementary.  The City received a $564,460 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Grant to fund improvements to the Platt and Redman intersection near the schools.  CMAQ grants are awarded to projects that demonstrate significant improvements to traffic flow and reduce harmful emissions.

This project includes new facilities for pedestrians and bicyclists, ADA compliant ramps, right and left turn lanes, and a new signal.  Construction will begin in 2014.  For more information, read coverage of the grant at The Milan-News Leader.
