PROCTOR, Vermont (AP) - A Vermont town is preparing for a major transportation project that will make its sidewalks easier to navigate for bicyclists and pedestrians.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2w11Cl7 ) the town of Proctor is planning a five-phase, $2 million improvement plan. Proctor officials plan to add and replace sidewalks, create bike lanes and introduce a bicycle loop.

The town has applied for over $500,000 in grant funds from the state Agency of Transportation’s bicycle and pedestrian program to help offset costs of the first phase of the project.

Town planners hope to make Proctor friendlier to cyclists and pedestrians in addition to connecting the area to Rutland’s Pine Hill Park.

Proctor’s bicycle and pedestrian project comes months after a scoping study.
