Murphysboro Receives $100,000 for Infrastructure Improvements
MURPHYSBORO -- Murphysboro has received a $100,000 grant for infrastructure improvements.
Mayor Will Stephens says the grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity will be used to upgrade the water main and widen a section of 7th Street from West Industrial Park Road to Future Lane.
It's the first of three phases to expand North 7th Street and upgrade water lines.
"These improvements are part of a longer term goal to put infrastructure in place so that the Murphysboro Industrial Park can continue to grow," said Stephens.
The project is expected to begin in the spring of 2014.
