City looks for $8.5M in stimulus
“Those were projects that we have the plans ready and all we need is the funding,” said Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth. “The problem is we don’t know what’s going to work out on this stimulus deal. We don’t know who’s going to end up making these decisions.”
The Martin Luther King project would extend the existing roadway from its terminus on Farmerville Street to U.S. 167 to the west at a cost of about $2.5 million.
The Willow Glen Drive project would extend that roadway toward the new frontage road constructed south of Interstate 20, and it would run about $2 million.
