Decatur - Construction is underway for the new County Market, at the corner of Grand Avenue and Route 48.
The car wash building, some houses and buildings have been torn down. The city council passed a $14 million dollar project back in May. It also approved a TIF district in the areas inside Illinois Route 48, Grand, Oakland and Leafland Avenues.
The city says it should help boost business in the struggling neighborhood.
This new County Market will be the second location for Decatur.
