Village officials in Godfrey are looking toward the future in planning for road projects. Last year, it received a grant that will eventually be used to replace the bridge on Bethany Lane. The Village is again applying for the grant offered by the East West Gateway Council of Governments, looking at projects at least a couple of years down the road.
Contract Village Engineer Travis Pfeiffer says villages submit their projects to the agency, and then wait through the selection process.
Projects fall under two categories. One involves projects that affect air quality, and the other deals with surface transportation.
