GRANITE CITY, Ill. (AP) - Kraft Foods is weighing whether to spend $40 million to expand a plant if Granite City and state provide about $400,000 to widen a road in front of the site.
The Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis reports the plant produces Capri Sun and Kool-Aid beverages.
As part of the project, the Illinois Department of Transportation would provide $300,000 for the road widening that Kraft calls necessary to allow trucks to turn into the plant.
Granite City Economic Development Director Jonathan Ferry says the matter may go before the city council sometime between April and June.
The Granite City facility became part of Kraft in 1991.
The International Olympic Committee is dropping Wresting from the 2020 Summer Games.Wrestling has been part of the Olympics since the first modern games in Athens - in 1896.

In the end, wrestling lost out.
The International Olympic Committee's executive board says it's renovating the Olympics and will likely add something new in 2020. Possibilities include baseball, karate, sport climbing and wakeboarding.
