Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer is scheduled to stop in Dickson next week and is expected to announce a third grant for the downtown Dickson revitalization project. State and city officials would not say what the commissioner is expected to announce, only that he will make an announcement at 3 pm Thursday at Dickson City Hall. But city officials have been saying they are expecting an announcement soon regarding a grant application for the third phase of the downtown project. In July 2012, Gov. Bill Haslam announced a $627,000 grant for phase two of the project. The city began the project with a $1.2 million grant for phase I. Mayor Don Weiss has said phase II is just about complete with design and specifications to be ready to go out for bid. Phase II will continue with the sidewalk improvements on South Main Street from Lugo’s where Phase I ended to West Walnut Street and then expand east to Church Street. Phase III is expected to not only continue expanding the project to the east and west of downtown, but could also extend it farther north from where Phase I ended at Murrell Street, depending on the amount of the grant. The city has budgeted $150,000 as a matching portion for each phase of the project, including a potential phase III match in this year’s budget. In announcing the grant for Phase II last year, Haslam praised the project and said the Tennessee Department of Transportation grant program will continue to give priority to ongoing projects.
