Three of the four projects the city of Galt submitted to the Sacramento Area Council of Governments for possible funding in August have been approved. Grants totaling $1.7 million could be issued later this year.
The three projects recommended for awards include:
- $100,000 for sidewalk and improvements under the Americans with Disabilities Act to 2nd Street between F Street and D Street. (This requires a $11,470 city match.)
- $1.3 million for improvements to A Street, from the western city limits to the Central Galt Interchange. This could include street rehabilitation, installation of infill sidewalks where there are currently gaps, replacing damaged sidewalks, installing ADA improvements and infilling bike lanes.
- $267,000 for bicycle lanes along New Hope Road, from city limits to 1st Street; West Elm Avenue, from city limits to McFarland Road; and Kost Road, from city limits to Raven Brook Drive. Additional bicycle routes would be installed on Emerald Oak Drive, from West Elm Ave to West A Street; Fumasi Drive, from West A Street to West C Street; Sparrow Drive, from West Elm Avenue to West A Street; West C Street, from Fumasi Drive to 4th Street; and 1st Street, from New Hope Road to Kost Road.
The recommendations will be presented to several SACOG committees in October and November followed by final SACOG board approval in December, according to City Manager Jason Behrmann.
He learned of the award late Thursday.
