The Iowa Transportation Commission today (Tuesday), approved a Revitalize Iowa’s Sound Economy (RISE) Local Development grant application submitted by Mills County.  Officials say slightly more than $1.626-million will be made available to assist in construction of approximately 5,650 feet of 190th Street south from Jesup Avenue toward U.S. 34, located west of Interstate 29.

The project is expected to be completed by October 2014. It was deemed necessary to provide access to six lots totaling 402 acres for industrial, transportation logistics and warehousing purposes. Funding for the grant comes from the county share of the RISE Fund.
