TROY, AL (WSFA) -

Troy's downtown streetscape is about to see big changes with the help of a grant from the Federal Transportation Alternatives Program fund.

TAP awarded the city the grant totaling $390,237 to help repair, improve and extend the sidewalks within the commercial district of Troy, on 6 roads surrounding City Square. Those streets include South Three Notch Street, Church Street, Elm Street, Love Street, Oak Street and W. Walnut Street. It also involves the implementation of handrails, curbs, gutters and landscaping.

"This is very good news for Troy," said Mayor Jason A. Reeves. "We are dedicated to revitalizing our downtown, and this grant money will go a long way in helping us make improvements."

TAP provides funding for programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives, including on and off road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation.

The fresh look will promote growth and beautification of the historic downtown district. The Troy Downtown Historic Commercial District received its historical designation by the Alabama Historical Commission in February 2013.
