Gov. Haslam announces nearly $1 million in grants for John Sevier Pool and pedestrian project in Blount County

Posted:

ALCOA (WATE) - Gov. Bill Haslam announced two grants Friday totaling nearly $1 million to renovate the John Sevier Pool in Maryville and improve pedestrian walkways in Alcoa.

The $250,000 grant for the John Sevier Pool improvement project includes replacing the roof on the 44-year-old facility, adding a handicap accessible ramp to the pool and updating the lifeguard quarters. The grant comes from the Local Park and Recreation Fund of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. The grant will be met with a matching contribution from the city of Maryville.

Alcoa received a $721,212 transportation alternative grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation for its Pedestrian Expansion Project to construct 1.6 miles of trail and 10 sidewalk sections that will parallel N. Wright Road, Cusick Road and Airport Plaza Boulevard.

The plan includes new striping, crosswalks, permanent markings, and pedestrian signals at road crossings.
