Almost $2 million was saved during the process of widening Quaker Avenue. The city's bond advisory committee will propose to the city council that the excess funds be put back into the city's streets.
The committee on Monday decided to suggest that the city use the savings to continue the expansion of 34th Street further west.
Construction between Indiana and University has been completed and construction is now underway between University and Avenue Q.
The board's suggestion is that the city use the more than $1.8 million to continue expansion between Indiana and Quaker. Kevin McMahon, chairman of the bond advisory committee is pleased with the progress.
"The bids have been competitive. We've been able to do more with the same money than we anticipated," McMahon said.
The proposal for the construction between Indiana and Quaker will be made to city council in July.
