The City of Foley is very excited to be a recipient of a $4.7 million TIGER Grant. The infrastructure improvements this award will fund include safe bicycle and pedestrian paths for residents and visitors throughout the community, and they will certainly have a very positive effect on our citizens.
For years, a fact of life in Foley has been that our city is divided into four quadrants by the two major highways that intersect the city. Because of the grid created by the highways, key areas of the city, including the library and centrally located 6-acre park have not been easy to access except by car.
TIGER funding from DOT will allow all four quadrants of the city to be more easily accessible with bicycle and pedestrian improvements that will create safe paths for better connectivity. These changes will promote walking and biking, and will enhance both quality of life and recreational opportunities.
