The Clanton City Council approved moving forward with a preliminary engineering and construction agreement for putting bridges at City Park during its Jan. 9 meeting.

A Transportation Alternatives Program grant will give the city $594,400 for the project with the city providing $148,000. The funding is a state grant through the Alabama Department of Transportation.

The grant would be for a bridge across a creek at City Park to allow access to the softball field from the new parking area that has been created on Seventh Street across from Goose Pond Park.

The city also approved a one-year moratorium on new wrecker services in the city limits.

Clanton City hall will be closed on Jan. 16 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
