Project 25: Bicycle & Pedestrian Improvements Program
This program includes funding for capital improvements on routes for the bicycle and pedestrian projects as may be contained in the approved Athens in Motion Plan, as may be amended from time to time, and for improved pedestrian accessibility.
Depending upon actual costs and funding availability, improvements may include, but are not limited to: additional roadway bicycle lanes, separate bicycle lanes, roadway pavement marking, off-road bicycle paths, trails, sidewalk improvements, pedestrian safety devices such as stamped and colorized crosswalks, flashing crosswalks, removing obstructions such as utility poles in sidewalks, refuge islands in intersections, improvements for the visually impaired, improved access to ACC Transit stops, signage, pedestrian countdown timers, and/or other safety equipment.
To the extent allowed by law, budgeted project funds may be used as matching funds for leveraging grant opportunities. Additionally, to the extent allowed by law, other funding sources, including, but not limited to, grants, may be utilized to offset and/or reduce the project budget. Any unspent project funds that accrue as a result of the receipt of grants or other funding sources may be assigned to other approved TSPLOST projects.
