Resurfacing will also be done along portions of Illinois and Central Avenue around the Emerson Building. This first phase is expected to be complete before Thanksgiving if the weather cooperates. The second phase will begin in the spring. The three-million dollars in road improvements is funded by the state's new infrastructure plan
