The St. Georges Revitalization Committee sought to use Transportation Enhancements funding to help revitalize the village of North St. George. In 2011, an award of $352,000 was matched with $84,000 in local funds to help address safety concerns, create an identity for the downtown, and construct sidewalks was granted. The project replaced cracked and deteriorated concrete sidewalks with brick pavers, ADA accessible ramps, and new curbs. In addition, new thermoplastic crosswalks which look like brick were added around Main Street.
The before and after photos are like night and day. Before, downtown St. George looked distressed and uninviting while afterwards it is warm and welcoming to travelers crossing over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal on Route 1 or Route 13. Future plans will connect the project area with the C&D Canal path.
