Union Bridge is to receive the last grant available to Carroll County from a state program for sidewalk improvements.
The Town Council is expected to receive formal notice of a $54,100 State Highway Administration grant for sidewalk reconstruction at its meeting tonight.
The meeting, rescheduled because of the holidays, begins at 7 p.m. in the town hall, 104 W. Locust St.
The sidewalk project is designed to make pedestrian traffic between the downtown business district and the supermarket on Route 75 easier and safer.
The $125,000 allocated to Carroll County under the three-year SHA program would be used up with this allocation, said Scott Dutrow, chief of engineering systems for the area SHA district.
Dutrow said the program expires June 30 unless the General Assembly renews it. It was designed to improve sidewalks along state highways in towns designated as Smart Growth revitalization areas.
