COLONY—The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA) has awarded the Town of Colony nearly $400,000 in grant funds to support the Colony Street Improvements project.
The ADECA Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), prepared by the North Central Alabama Regional Council of Governments (NARCOG) Regional Planning Agency (RPA), awarded Colony $399,827 to fund their project.
The Colony Street Improvements project involves approximately 8,565 feet of paving along with multiple patching and asphalt overlays on Johnson Circle, Ward Hill Road, and sections of Colony Road. The total square yards to be paved is 14,888. To create adequate ditching for stormwater drainage, there will be 8,705 linear feet of drainage improvements to help remove water from roadway surfaces.
The NARCOG RPA Team is very excited that Colony was awarded this much needed grant on its first submission. “I am so excited to be working with the Town of Colony on the recently funded CDBG Road Improvement grant project. The town is in desperate need of some road repairs and this grant will help so much with that,” Tiffany Green-Oldacre, grant administrator with NARCOG. The street and drainage improvements will greatly improve the traveling experience and quality of life for all residents. They look forward to working with the town on this project.
