CHAMPAIGN-URBANA -- Construction started Monday on the Olympian Drive extension. The road will stretch about a mile east from Apollo Drive, in Champaign, to North Lincoln Avenue, in Urbana.

IDOT gave more than $7 million for the project. City leader say county funds will not be spent on the extension. It will take about two years to finish.
