The City of Lyons has received $298,580.70 in grant funds from The Georgia Department of Transportation Alternatives (TA) grant. This grant targeted cities with populations of 5000 or less and funded non-traditional transportation-related activities such as pedestrian and bicycle facilities.

The projects included in this grant award include.

  • Construction of a pedestrian sidewalk from the intersection of State Route 280 and Bulldog Road to the Lyons City Limits.  This pedestrian walkway is needed to allow safe travel to the three large county schools along the route. 
  • Construction of a pedestrian sidewalk between the Toombs County Court complex and Lyons Downtown along State Route 292. 
  • Construction of a pedestrian-bike facility along state route 280 from its intersection with South Victory Drive to the City Limits. This facility is meant to be a connector facility between the two cities. 

“The City of Lyons is proud to partner with the Georgia Department of Transportation on this transformative project,” said Mayor Willis D. NeSmith Jr. “This upgrade will provide residents with a vital connection to our Toombs County Courthouse, County School System, downtown public parks, and direct access to our Main Street which is home to some of our city’s most unique and vibrant restaurants and businesses. These improvements will support safe walkways for all users and assist with strong economic growth for years to come.”
