PERHAM (KDLM) - The city of Perham has recently been awarded a $750,000 grant by Minnesota's Local Road Improvement Program.

The grant will be used to fund much of the cost to complete the city's truck route - going along 7th Ave NE and its railroad crossing and more, a project estimated at $1.28 million.

City Manager John Smith said the project will likely be scheduled for 2020, since a large road work project is already slated for 2019. He also cited the uncertain schedule of when the 1st Ave/County 8 crossing near Tuffy's will be opened as another reason to wait.
