State awards grant for Clarksville projects

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam and the Tennessee Department of Transportation have announced a grant of more than $600,000 for projects benefiting downtown Clarksville.

The grant, announced Thursday, will go to a project that extends a transportation trail along the Red River and completes a walkway in Clarksville's downtown River District.

The grant funds the first segment of the Clarksville River Trail, the first of two sections of a multi-use, north-south trail segment extending from the merge of the Cumberland and Red Rivers and continuing north along the Red River.

The project also completes a downtown pedestrian walkway by joining the city's North Extension Riverwalk, including construction of the 12-foot-wide trail and installation of landscaping, benches and signage regarding points of interest and historical significance.
