The City of Sheridan will soon be taking the next step in applying for a grant to help fund the Adams Ranch Pathway Extension Project in south Sheridan. The City Council in July will be considering a resolution to apply for a Transportation Alternatives Program grant through the Wyoming Department of Transportation to extend the pathway system to the south. City Engineer Hanns Mercer.
Mercer said that the pathway extension would be done in conjunction with WYDOT’s project to widen Coffeen to four lanes in 2022.
The City’s pathway system was a high priority in developing the Parks and Recreation Master Plan that was accepted by the Council last summer.
The deadline to apply for the WYDOT Tap Grant is July 15. Mercer said that the grant awards will most likely be announced by WYDOT in September of this year. The pathway extension will be located along Coffeen Avenue from Sheridan College to Fleming Boulevard. A total of 7,300 feet of pathway will be added with the project.
