Placeholder Image
After years of discussing the need to construct a sidewalk on Sparta Street for the safety of pedestrians, a nearly $1 million grant from the state will make it possible.Gov. Bill Haslam and the Tennessee Department of Transportation have awarded a $948,080 Multimodal Access Grant to the city of McMinnville for the Sparta Street Sidewalk Project. The project includes installation of sidewalks and a pedestrian crossing along Sparta Street from where the existing sidewalks currently ends to River Park Hospital.
