About this grant

This grant to the Flint Cultural Center Corporation will provide the local match requirement for the Kearsley Streetscape project. Kearsley Street runs through the middle of the Flint Cultural Center campus and connects the campus to the downtown. A transportation enhancement grant from the Michigan Department of Transportation will fund nearly half of the project’s cost. The Kearsley Streetscape project is intended to slow the flow of traffic through the campus, improve the appearance of the street, and make it more pedestrian friendly, for both walking and bicycling. The project will add crosswalks; create bicycle lanes; install new ornamental, energy-efficient streetlights; repair sidewalks; and add trees and other landscaping.
