"The grant will allow us to have some detailed designs, drawings, suggestions and recommendations, and hopefully elements to implement it and ways to fund it," said Frankfort Planning and Building Director Gary Muller.
Muller says this is all part of the Greening America's Capitals program. And It's one of three projects.
"When the grant option came in, for the greening of the capital city, that was a great opportunity, we felt, to apply. Trying to tie in the old downtown walk ability through bridge street intersection to the capital," Muller said.
Muller said it will give pedestrians and bikers more room in that area, which also receives heavy foot traffic from the nearby elementary school.
"If anyone tries to cross it and walk it it's difficult. Because of all the interactions and internal conflicts of vehicle movements. So we're trying to emphasize the pedestrian movements," Muller added.
Planning officials say public meetings will be a big part in the deciding process, but those have yet to be scheduled.
