MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Agency of Transportation is seeking proposals from across the state to promote access and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians.
The agency's Bicycle and Pedestrian program will distribute $4 million in federal funds for infrastructure work that could range from bike lanes, shared-use paths and sidewalks to pedestrian signals and crossing improvements.
The funds are available for planning and construction.
Program Manager Jon Kaplan says the grants provide critical resources that communities need to build facilities that enhance mobility, promote public health and improve connections to other modes of transportation modes.
Program applicants are required to attend one of two workshops scheduled at Vermont Interactive Technologies sites across Vermont. The first workshop is May 15, the second is May 20.
