IMPERIAL — A $15 million grant from state Cap-and-Trade funds will be used toward a green transportation and affordable housing project here.

The Worthington la Luna Rural Housing and Transportation Partnership will consist of 114 high-density units of net-zero-energy affordable housing on a 3.5-acre lot at West Worthington and Nance roads. The plan calls for building more than 3/4 mile of new sidewalks, 2.74 miles of new bikeways and three crosswalks. Grant money will also be applied to purchasing 50 hybrid vans for CalVans vanpool service.
