Congressman David Trone (MD-06) announced that Poolesville was one of the successful grantees among 15 projects requesting funding for projects across Maryland’s Sixth District. These investments will create new jobs, deliver much-needed resources to Sixth District communities, and restore neglected infrastructure.
Details: $4,192,720 through the Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill for the Fisher Avenue Streetscape Project for the Town of Poolesville, located at 19721 Beall St, Poolesville, MD 20837. A financial disclosure letter can be found here.
The funding will be used to construct streetscape infrastructure improvements on Fisher Avenue, which will include an increased focus on ADA accessibility and overall pedestrian safety and connectivity. The project will provide traffic calming measures for improved safety and traffic flow and will include pedestrian-friendly street lighting and sidewalks, which will help to attract and retain a quality business district. Ultimately, the Streetscape Project will dramatically enhance the Town’s infrastructure and lead to a revitalized downtown, increased business activity, and additional employment opportunities.
Per the press release: “For Poolesville, this means after over 20 years of visioning, planning, and community advocacy, we will finally realize vital safety improvements and a transformational main street.”
