Mayor Don Stanford and city councilmen will discuss progress of transportation enhancement projects that include Phase 3 of the bike trail, railroad depot and Bank Street streetscape at noon tomorrow.
The work is being funded by the Alabama Department of Transportation through the federal highway administration. The city must bid the work by January or lose the grant money, which requires a 20-percent local match.
Officials will meet in the conference room on the sixth floor at City Hall at 402 Lee St. N.E. Earlier this month, the council voted 3-2 to commit about $500,000 in city money for a $2 million restoration of the 112-year-old old L&N railroad depot off Vine Street Northwest. The project would be funded with a $720,000 ALDOT grant, $550,000 commitment from Decatur Downtown Redevelopment Authority and up to $200,000 in private donations.
Work has finished on the Second Avenue Street Southeast, and plans are being finalized for the Lower Bank Street streetscape.
