    Putney getting new sidewalks

    PUTNEY The Vermont town of Putney is getting $250,000 for sidewalk improvements after years of discussions.

    The town is receiving the funds from the Agency of Transportation for the project, which seeks to extend a walkway up Route 5 toward Landmark College.

    Earlier this year, Putney completed a four-year project to upgrade about a mile of sidewalk from Town Hall to the Putney Co-op.

    A state-sponsored park and ride also has been approved for the town.

    Town Manager Cynthia Stoddard said the projects, located on the south and north ends of the village, will make it safer and easier to cut down on automobile use. Work on both could start within the next two years.
