MARYVILLE, Mo. — A trail extension project has been selected for a federal grant program, the City of Maryville announced Thursday.

In a press release, the city said that the Torrance Street Trail Extension Project was selected by MoDOT to receive $143,259.84 through the federal Transportation Alternatives Program.

The proposed project will construct more than 1,600 linear feet of 8-foot wide concrete, off-street sidewalk along Torrance Street from Walnut to Munn. The extension will connect six previously completed trail projects through an area that does not currently have a sidewalk.

Federal funds will account for 64 percent of the project, with local matching funds making up the rest.

A public meeting will be scheduled for local residents to give input during the preliminary design phase, but no date has yet been set for that.
