Project to supplement new sidewalks, benches, bike racks, trees and walking lighting

OAK RIDGE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) Commissioner John Schroer currently announced a scarcely $800,000 extend to renovate Jackson Square in Oak Ridge.

The $798,687 travel encouragement extend is for Phase we of a Jackson Square Townsite Reconfiguration Project, that includes vital modifications to a parking lot on Broadway Avenue.

The plan will renovate this area into an attractive, landscaped piazza and parking area. Public sidewalks adjacent to a area will be reconstructed and will be connected to new sidewalks within a landscaped plaza. The plan will also supplement park benches, bicycle racks, canopy trees, and walking lighting.

“The Jackson Square plan will serve Oak Ridge’s efforts to raise a ancestral downtown area and yield increasing mobility and softened entrance to tiny businesses and informative activities,” Haslam said. “Projects such as this one raise internal communities and make Tennessee an even improved place to live, work and play.”

“Through Transportation Enhancement grants, TDOT has saved some-more than $270 million in non-traditional travel projects,” Schroer said.  “This module has assisted communities all over a state in their efforts to reanimate downtowns, prominence ancestral areas, yield choice means of transportation, and boost opportunities for mercantile development.”

The extend is done probable by a federally saved module administered by TDOT. A accumulation of activities such as a replacement of ancestral facilities, bike and walking trails, landscaping and other non-traditional travel projects are authorised for extend supports underneath a sovereign program.
