SECOG / MPO Communities Awarded TAP Grants

April 4, 2016

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.
