"Walk To Walnut" Construction Begins

Grand Island City workers have begun working on improvements to 15th and Custer Avenue in order to realign the main driveway to Walnut Middle School as well as install traffic signals in the intersection.


The "Walk to Walnut" project is also designed to provide a direct route for students walking to school in the newly designed intersection.


Project manager Scott Griepenstroh tells KRGI News despite past hang-ups, he says federal funds will help the local area immensely.


Griepenstroh says, "We've jumped through the hoops, we got everything going, we got the funding and we're really glad to see our local tax dollars to Washington come back to be used for an improvement."


Griepenstroh says the project will cost about $337,000 and should also provide smoother traffic flow.
