The City of West Columbia has been awarded a $288,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) program. This grant will be used to develop and implement an action plan to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers along the Highway 1 Corridor in West Columbia.
