PROSSER -- The city of Prosser has received two state grants to pay for road improvements.
The state Transportation Improvement Board awarded grants totaling just more than $1 million that will go toward new curbs, surfaces and storm drains on Sheridan Avenue between Sixth Street and Wine Country Road, and on Sixth Street from Sherman Avenue to the railroad crossing, the city said in a recent news release.
In addition, the city will contribute $105,000 toward the projects.
Construction is scheduled to begin in April and wrap up by October.
City officials called the half-mile stretch of Sheridan one of the most deteriorated streets in town. The city already renovated another section of the road in 2009.
