The City of Carbondale receives $1.8 million in federal funding to resurface S. Wall Street
The City of Carbondale will receive nearly two million dollars in federal grant funding from the Highway Safety Improvement Program to resurface South Wall Street from Park Street to Walnut Street.
City officials say in addition to resurfacing, the project will include a "Road Diet" reconfiguration to lower the potential for crashes and reduce vehicle speed.
According to the Federal Highway Safety Administration, a road diet converts a four-lane roadway to a three-lane roadway consisting of two through lanes and a center two-way turn lane.
Bi-directional bike lanes and ADA-accessible sidewalks will also be added.
The anticipated start date for the project is the Summer of 2024.
