HUMBOLDT Fresh off the announcement of being awarded a $1.08 million grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation for the Last Mile Project, Beth Barlow went before Humboldts city council on Tuesday night to answer questions about the next step.
This project should run around $1.5 million. We dont have exact plans at this time, but our next step is to hire an engineering firm, Barlow said.
She said the $1.5 million is the estimated cost of the sidewalk, a traffic calmer and a parking lot at the trailhead. Barlow said once she receives the engineers recommendations she will update the council.
