US government awards Birmingham $21.6M grant for ongoing trail project

The U.S. Department of Transportation recently awarded the Magic City nearly $22 million to improve its ongoing urban trail project. Funding is part of DOT’s Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity Grant Program.

The grant will include 3.16 miles of new improvements along the trail’s two main corridors, stretching from the Fourth Avenue Business District to Legion Field on Graymont Avenue as well as 16th Street North. These improvements will feature a combination of multi-use paths, sidewalks, streetscapes and bicycle lanes.
