The Cookeville City Council approved an engineering proposal for a sidewalk project Thursday night.
Councilman Dwight Henry said the sidewalks will cover much of Interstate Drive and portions of South Jefferson Avenue and South Walnut.
“We think it’s necessary to add sidewalks to that area,” Henry said. ” We see a lot of folks walking and we think those people will use those sidewalks. It just improves the quality of life for the people”
The project will be funded with state money.
