Bristol Awarded $37,169 for Transportation Capital Improvements

Bristol’s Village Green Lighting, Safety and Enhancement Project ($37,169) will help to create a safer and inviting pathway to the downtown for pedestrians and bicycles by installing benches, bike racks, and vintage lighting. The project is scheduled for completion in early summer.

The Vermont Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) administers the Downtown Transportation Fund which supports revitalization efforts in Designated Downtowns each year, funding investment in public spaces that creates a sense of identity and pride in downtowns across Vermont. The Downtown Transportation Fund helps municipalities pay for transportation-related capital improvements, including streetscape improvements, parking facilities, utility relocation and access improvements. Since its inception in 1999, the program has completed over 84 capital improvement projects in 20 different communities, leveraging over $10 million.  For more info, click here.
