Brookhaven, GA, Aug 15, 2017 – On Aug 1 the Brookhaven Public Works Department received a $75,000 LMIG safety grant from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) on behalf of the City.
The Public Works Department is actively organizing and scheduling the LMIG grant projects, which should be completed by the end of 2017. Specific projects funded by the 2017 LMIG safety grant and City funds are provided in the table below.
Grant allocations are determined by a formula that considers the linear mileage of centerline road in a given jurisdiction as well as that area’s total population and compares them to the states total population and centerline miles. In Brookhaven’s case this resulted in a grant of $75,000, which represents 70 percent of the total project cost.
“The LMIG program provides tremendous opportunity for the City to improve pedestrian and vehicular safety throughout the City as well as allowing us to partner with the state and achieve a common goal, to enhance the efficiency and efficacy of our transportation infrastructure,” said Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst.
