Bicycle & Pedestrian Projects

Through the federal Surface Transportation Program-Direct Attributable (STP-DA) program, the city has access to federal transportation money for bike and pedestrian projects. Voters approved $1.8 million in bonds to provide the required 20% local match for bicycle and pedestrian projects. The one project ready for contract award would use $12,000 of this.
