Yesterday, the Council unanimously approved an item for one of my ARPA Projects – sidewalk infrastructure improvements in West End (District 6) totaling $150,590.00 in federally allocated funds.
“This is another one of our amazing ARPA projects that we have moving. I’m really excited about this because it will be improving the sidewalk infrastructure in West End,” Council President Pro Tem Smitherman said. “One of these sidewalks is right where Hemphill Elementary is located. I think it’s really important that we have sidewalks where our kids are walking to school and that we maintain those.”
Those sidewalk projects are as follows:
Cotton Ave. from 12th Street SW to 11th Street SW – Both sides
Cotton Ave. from 11th Street SW to 10th Street SW – South side only
12th Street SW from Cotton Ave to McMillian – Both sides
12th Street SW from Tuscaloosa Ave. to Cotton Ave. – West side only
Cotton Ave from 13th Street SW to 12th Street SW – North side only
Note: Following the passage of the American Rescue Plan Act in 2021, each Council district received $3 million in funds to distribute to projects in their districts.
