The grant will be used to help pay for a 2018 project that will see the reconstruction of 11th Street from Ind.-5 to Wayne Street, along with the addition of improved storm drainage, curbs, sidewalk and new lighting to make the area more pedestrian friendly. The total estimated cost of the project is $1.2 million.
