FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 19th, 2018
The City of Bryant entered into 2018 with a monumental number of projects underway. From new fire stations, parks improvements, school expansions and new streets, it is no secret that our city is under construction. Thanks to the city’s long term planning process two of those projects have already received grant money to assist with funding.
In February, Metroplan in Little Rock awarded the city over a half a million dollars for improvements at the Hilldale, Hilltop and Bryant Parkway Intersection. This grant is very timely with the new Parkway Elementary School that is under construction in the area, as well as the new Bryant Parkway extension that is currently out to bid. It will extend the connectivity from the existing parkway up to Hilldale Road.
This week, Bryant received an official notice from Metroplan that we have also been awarded a separate grant in the amount of $50,000, funded through the Transportation Alternative Program (TAP).
“The aforementioned money is designated to go towards the Bryant Parkway Multi-Use Pathway that will be constructed along the new parkway leading from Interstate 30 to south Reynolds,” stated Mayor Jill Dabbs. “The completion of that new roadway will improve connectivity and traffic challenges in several areas of the city.”
