Stamper Lane in Godfrey has undergone a major upgrade over the past year, with a portion of the roadway closed in late 2013 while widening, curb and gutter work was performed near the ball diamonds and Glazebrook Park.  Work will continue on the roadway until improvements reach Pierce Lane, and the village has received a grant to help fund Phases 2 and 4 of the project.

The total cost of the Phase 4 project is estimated at just over $343,000 with $257,000 of federal money heading to that portion of the project.  Phase 2 is a $900,000 project, of which federal money will cover $675,000.  Village Engineer Jo Emerick is asking the board to request the county’s financial assistance to cover a portion of the local cost

The project was submitted for federal funding in 2011, but the application was turned down.  Phase 4 is slated for 2015, with Phase 2 scheduled for construction in 2017.  The two projects will finish the upgrades all the way to Pierce Lane.
