Winooski gets $8.5 million for water, sewer system upgrades
WINOOSKI, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont city of Winooski has received over $8.5 million to help complete water and sewer system upgrades.
WCAX-TV reports the projects are expected to cost the city over $20 million. The overhauls are part of the first phase of the city’s Main Street revitalization project.
Winooski City Manager Jesse Baker says the “infrastructure along Main Street is about 130- to 140-years-old.” Baker says the city needs to improve the infrastructure before moving forward with the water projects.
The city hopes to receive more state and federal funding for the Main Street effort. Officials plan to start construction in 2020.
