Specifically in the City of Asheville as well as Hendersonville, there were some specific gaps where sidewalks simply stopped, and a transit stop may be there where there wasn't a sidewalk currently there and it was just grass and a curb. And so, we would go in and fill in various gaps throughout the city to really connect a larger pedestrian corridor that wasn't currently there, as well as providing better access to transit for pedestrians. So again, this was in the Asheville downtown area, as well as some of the River District area and some downtown corridors in Hendersonville. So, a number of them were provided to the central business districts of the municipalities in our area.
