The village of Bellwood recently received a $300,000 grant to resurface a stretch of Washington Blvd., from the viaduct near Addison Creek west to Eastern Blvd., according to Bellwood Mayor Andre Harvey.
The money for the resurfacing project comes from federal Community Development Block Grant funding that has been passed through to Cook County, which in turn awarded it to the village earlier this year.
Harvey said that, in addition to resurfacing, work will include curb and gutter enhancements. He said that the village will likely go out to bid within the next 60 days. The mayor added that construction on the project could start in the spring.
The village also recently started installing LED street signs along major thoroughfares, such as 25th Ave. and Mannheim. Harvey said that of the roughly 50 signs due to go up, around 85 percent have already been installed. VFP
