|City seeks grant money for enhancement work|
The city of Monroe will look to secure roughly $1.75 million in state funding for enhancement projects along its business corridors.
Last month, the Monroe City Council signed off on several grant applications to the Louisiana Department of Transportation Enhancement Grant Program.
Monroe grant writer Rod Guy said Monday the city would submit five grants for projects along a host of streets in downtown Monroe. The projects total roughly $350,000 each, Guy said.
"If these five enhancement grants are approved, they would end up covering every business district in the city of Monroe," Guy said.
The projects include new sidewalks for Forsythe Avenue from Riverside Drive to Loop Road; Tower Drive from 18th Street to University Avenue; Washington Street from Riverside Drive to Louisville Avenue; Jackson Street from Ouachita Avenue to Plum Street; Louisville Avenue from DeSiard Street to Kansas Lane, and then to Central Avenue to the Monroe Regional Airport terminal.
The city has been approved for one street beautification project each year, Guy said.
Two years ago the city was approved for funding to improve Louisville Bridge to 6th Street. Last year, the city received funding to improve Louisville from 6th Street to 18th Street.
However, with economic stimulus funding available, a possibility exist for all projects to be approved for funding, Guy said.
