A plan to extend 25th Street from 1st Avenue North to Idylwyld Drive will move forward despite a doubling of costs since plans for the project were first approved by city council a year ago. On Monday, council approved a $17 million dollar budget paving the way for work to begin. Utility work will start this summer with road construction following next year. The work should be completed in 2013.
Changes should facilitate a smoother flow of traffic between the Central Business District, City Park, and the Caswell Hill areas. It should also reduce the number of trains that presently travel through the areas to the switching yards that would move out of the downtown area as a result of the plan.
