The following two communities within SECOG’s and the MPO's region each received TAP funding awards in 2016 to be used for transportation alternative projects:
Crooks: The $400,000 TAP award will assist the City of Crooks in financing a trail along West Ave-nue (Highway 137), the main north/south street in the City. The safety and improvement of this road, and the provision of a safe transportation alterna-tive, especially for children, was identified as the number one concern in the community. A ten foot wide path will be constructed along West Avenue with a landscaped grass boulevard separating the path from the highway.
Tea: The $96,634 TAP award will assist the City of Tea in financing Phase 2 of the City’s Shared Use Path project. The City will construct a ten foot wide path within the Tea Athletic Complex. The path will connect to existing and future residential devel-opments and the City’s downtown business district.
