New sidewalks, path funded by fed bucks

Citizen Staff Writer

Two Tucson neighborhoods will get new sidewalks thanks to almost $1 million in federal funds coming to southern Arizona.

The money, from the Transportation Enhancement Grant Program, will fund sidewalks in the neighborhood around Flowing Wells Junior High and Wright Elementary and on Pima Street, according to a news release from the Pima Association of Governments, which manages the grants locally.

Near Flowing Wells and Wright, $500,000 will go toward sidewalks as part of the county Safe Routes to School Project.

A half-mile, $433,450 walking path will be build on the north side of Pima Street between Columbus Boulevard and Alvernon Way, the release said.

Statewide the federal grant program will fund $6 million of work on 13 projects. Another $500,000 will go to renovations at the Ajo train depot.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
