The City of Natchitoches will be hosting a public hearing to discuss the Department of Transportation's RAISE (Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity) Grant and its proposed use to fund the Natchitoches Safe Streets Revitalization Project. The hearing will be held on Wednesday, June 9 at 5 p.m. in the Council Chambers at 716 Second Street.
The City is seeking public comments on the project, which will serve to address DOT's goal of funding projects that benefit low-income communities, disadvantaged communities, communities underserved by affordable transportation, or overburdened communities. In alignment with that goal, the Natchitoches Safe Streets Revitalization Project aims to rehabilitate and revitalize the Texas Street Business Corridor and rehabilitate feeder roads and neighborhood streets. The project elements include rehabilitation of roads and drainage facilities, new pavement, new and widened sidewalks, walking paths, marked bike and pedestrian lanes, improved lighting and other amenities that ensure ADA compliance.
