Elk Grove Village officials will break ground Thursday afternoon on the first project of an aggressive infrastructure overhaul estimated to cost $110 million.

Improvements will include a facade overhaul and interior renovations of the existing building, a new salt barn, more storage space and a small plant nursery. The project is expected to be finished by the end of this year.
Other projects included in the eight-year overhaul include a two new fire stations, a public works facility, road and drainage improvements and pedestrian paths.
