Old Main Corridor, Heritage Receive State Funding from Governor Tomblin
The West Virginia Transportation Enhancement Grant Program is a federal-aid program of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration. The program provides annual funding, through the Safe Accountable Flexible Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) legislation, to West Virginia communities for non-traditional transportation projects such as improving safety for pedestrians and bicyclists through the construction of sidewalks and trails, acquisition of scenic or historic sites, preserving historic resources and stimulating tourism development.
