While the project is estimated to cost roughly $1.5 million, the Public Works Department has secured a federal grant for 1.2 million resulting in the City’s portion being roughly $300,000. It is likely that the City’s portion will be paid through the MSD Operation Maintenance Construction Improvement tax funds. Construction is expected to begin in 2027.
