The Montana Department of Transportation has awarded nearly $1 million for the construction of new sidewalks in Evergreen, the largest source of funding for the long-anticipated project that aims to provide safe routes to schools in the community.
Daren Engellant, a local businessman who has helped spearhead the project as vice president of the Evergreen Chamber of Commerce, announced last week that the department has approved a $984,881 grant for the construction of paved paths along U.S. 2 between Montana 35 and Sunset Drive, and along portions of Montana 35 and West Evergreen Drive.
"Fantastic news for Evergreen!" Engellant said in an email.
