Gov. Steve Beshear recently joined community leaders and students at Calloway County Middle School to celebrate the completion of two new safety sidewalk projects.
Murray received a combined $339,000 in investment for the projects, aimed at improving pedestrian and bicycle access for local students.
“These projects have afforded students the opportunity to walk or bike to school without compromising their safety,” Gov. Beshear said. “Students and pedestrians in the city of Murray will greatly benefit from these overdue safety enhancement and energy efficient projects.”
The combined funding included a $214,000 Safe Routes to School grant and $125,000 Energy Efficiency Block Grant (EECBG).
The Safe Routes to School project provided a safe pedestrian and bicycle route from North 18th Street to College Farm Road, which connects to Calloway County Middle School. More than 120 students live within a two-mile radius of the school and can benefit from this sidewalk addition.
The EECBG allowed for construction of sidewalk along a section of North 16th Street, providing Murray State University students a way to walk safely to campus rather than be dependent on cars. The project included a pedestrian walking bridge and is located just down the road from the Safe Routes to School project. Read the full story
