Investing in the State Avenue corridor will energize the transit corridor to be served by the new CONNEX route and transit infrastructure improvements provided by the $10.5 million federal TIGER grant.
According to MARC’s website for this project “Sustainable places are VIBRANT, with activity centers that offer a rich mix of amenities and housing choices, with easy access to jobs, services and recreation. They are CONNECTED by transportation corridors that accommodate different modes of travel — walking, biking, transit and auto. They are GREEN, respecting and preserving the natural environment while promoting healthy lifestyles and healthy residents.”
