Huge construction project begins next week in Mt. Carmel

MT. CARMEL, IL (WFIE) - A reminder for Mt. Carmel drivers.

Beginning next week, part of College Drive will be closed off as crews start work on a construction project.

They're replacing water lines and widening the sidewalks.

It'll happen in two phases -- first from 13th Street to the Community Church of God.

Then from the church to Oak Street.

City officials tell us they hope to start work on Tuesday.

The $1.6 million project is expected to be complete by April 2016.
