Additional public grant funding will go toward the advancement of Lexington’s downtown linear park project. Governor Steve Beshear made the announcement at city hall on Wednesday.
The $2.7 million will go to support design and construction of Town Branch Commons along a section of Vine Street. Governor Beshear says a protected pedestrian crossing will be established near the Lextran Transit Center. “The signal for the pedestrian crossing will include a phase to allow buses to safely exit the transit center,” said Beshear.
