Frankfort residents will see some new signs being installed in the future after the city was awarded a nearly $290,000 Transportation Alternatives grant for its wayfinding signage project.
The signs will be created and installed based on the city’s wayfinding master plan adopted by the city commission earlier this year after several public meetings for community input.
“We appreciate this funding which will enable the City to move forward with our Wayfinding Signage Plan,” Mayor Bill May said.
Total costs for the project is estimated to be about $362,329. TAP funding will require a 20 percent match from the City, which can be met with cash and/or in-kind services.
The plan consists of fabricating and installing about 105 signs in downtown Frankfort to allow local citizens as well as visitors to the Capital City to be able to easily navigate their way to points of interest such as local landmarks, city, county and state office buildings, historic sites, shops and museums.
The signage area encompasses the City’s “Renaissance on Main” or Main Street area which is bordered by Wilkinson Boulevard, Mero Street, East Main Street, Capital Avenue and Second Street.
