“This project will complete a major component of Springfield’s Greenway Master Plan and will provide critical links to neighborhoods, schools and parks. “Tennessee’s downtowns are the heart of our communities, and this grant helps improve the quality of life for residents and visitors to Springfield,” Haslam said.  

The transportation alternative grant is made possible through a federally funded program formerly known as “transportation enhancement” and is administered by the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT).

“Through these grants, TDOT has funded more than $306 million in non-traditional transportation project. “This program has assisted communities all over the state in their efforts to revitalize downtowns, highlight historic areas, provide alternative means of transportation, and increase opportunities for economic development,” Schroer said.  

A variety of activities, such as the restoration of historic facilities, bike and pedestrian trails, landscaping and other non-traditional transportation projects, are eligible for grant funds under the federal program. 

State Sen. Jim Summerville (R-Dickson) and state Rep. Joshua Evans (R-Greenbrier) represent Robertson County in the Tennessee General Assembly.
