Boneyard Creek Upgrade on Hold


Urbana IL – Plans have been scaled back to upgrade the Boneyard Creek area in downtown Urbana due to rising costs.


Monday night council members approved 28 of 30 cost cutting measures recommended last week. Those cuts would reduce cost to an estimated 2.4 million dollars. Council members were forced to make cuts after the lowest bid for the project came in at 10.3 million, due to the changes.


The project may not be completed until June of 2014.
