GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - The Grand Island City Council voted on Tuesday night to move forward on phase two of a project that aims to improve some roads throughout Grand Island.

This phase of the project will work on roads from Faidley Avenue to 13th Street including Custer Avenue, the first phase worked on Old Potash Highway to Faidley Avenue.

John Collins with Grand Island Public Works said the changes should make for a smoother ride.

“The sections we are replacing, we will be turning into the modern type of cross section so that when you drive down it, it’ll be reasonably smooth like most of the other streets in town,” Collins said.

Tuesday’s vote awarded the project to Diamond Engineering Company, for just over $926,000.
