It's the complete overhaul of Northtown Rd. between Towanda Ave. and Linden St.
Work is slated to include new gutters, new curbs and concrete instead of asphalt.
Town council members are voting Monday night on the project that's a $4 million deal with IDOT.
About $800,000 is required from the town. The rest is federal and state funding.
City Manager Mark Peterson said Monday the improvements would help ease traffic and prepare the town's north side for future growth.
"If you look at east to west traffic, you got Raab Road then you've got all the way over the interstate to Northown Road before there's a good east to west connector street, and we're seeing more traffic on Northtown.," he said.
Normal's share of the cost would come from motor-fuel taxes. If approved, work could begin and finish this year.
The road would be off limits while it's under construction.
