Cairo Town Supervisor Dan Benoit Sat., Apr. 22, announced on his Facebook page the town of Cairo has been awarded a $551,000 grant from the state of New York to construct a 2,230 foot multi-use pathway. This grant, in addition to an earlier award, will fully fund the project, Benoit said. The sidewalk will run along Main Street for a half mile from Cairo Elementary School to Cumberland Farms, and include connections to bike pathways, as well. The funding was made available through the Federal Highway Administration and the New York State Department of Transportation. Under the same program, the town of Greenville was awarded $760,000 to replace and extend its sidewalks.
