Stimulus money to help pay for Grange Ave. project

Hales Corners - Federal stimulus dollars will be used to help pay for a portion of Grange Avenue to be resurfaced next year.

The village will pick up about $120,000 of the more than $700,000 needed to complete the project, Village Administrator Mike Weber said. The rest will be paid for with stimulus monies.

Grange Avenue will be resurfaced from 92nd to 108th streets beginning next spring. Village officials originally planned for the project to occur over the next four years.

"A few months ago it looked like smaller communities weren't going to see a nickel" of federal stimulus dollars, Weber said. "This is very encouraging."
