Sidewalk project slowly progresses
The project which will hopefully bring a sidewalk to this portion of Sparta Street has nearly cleared the environmental phase, according to the city.
The Sparta Street sidewalk project has inched forward.“The sidewalk project is about through the environmental stage,” said McMinnville city administrator Bill Brock, who couldn’t help take a jab at the situation. “It’s moving like a streak of lightning through the process.”The city of McMinnville was awarded a $948,080 Multimodal Access Grant from TDOT two years ago in June 2015 for a sidewalk along Sparta Street. However, there are no signs of a sidewalk.
