The entities awarded funding will contribute $3.5 million in local match, bringing the total investment in the region’s bicycle and pedestrian facilities to $27 million as part of the 2020 Transportation Alternatives Call for Projects.

The projects will provide connections to schools and major hubs of employment in certain parts of the North Texas area for residents bicycling and walking, while increasing safety.
