CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - The city of Claremont has been chosen to receive a grant of nearly $478,000 from the New Hampshire Transportation Department to improve sidewalks and upgrade a rail trail for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The Eagle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1u7uvpK) final approval for the grant would come from the Executive Council. The city would be responsible for nearly $120,000 in matching funds.

The Transportation Department expects the project to begin this summer.

City officials say the Neighborhood Connectivity and Rail Trail Improvement Project will upgrade East Street between Pleasant and Broad streets, which currently has no sidewalk, and will extend the length of the street.

The Bobby Woodman rail trail portion will include new surface materials as well as an improved trail head and safety improvements.
