First Street and Malcolm Avenue included in La Salle streets project

Posted by wlpo on April 11, 2012

La Salle has been big on improving their downtown and it probably helps that they’ll be resurfacing First Street.

The main drag is included in this year’s streets program.  Some side streets including a rough stretch of Malcolm Avenue will be redone.  In the case of Malcolm Avenue curb and gutters will be added.

The road work will be paid for with motor fuel tax money, meaning IDOT will have to approve the city’s plans before a contractor can be hired.

The city will also be bonding $1 million.  Mayor Jeff Grove says that won’t affect taxes.
