Construction site

Earth-moving work to prepare the site of the future home of Tonica’s new Dollar General store is underway along Ed Lambert Road (North 20th Road). Tonica’s efforts to increase commercial development have begun paying off, as the village will also be home to a new and larger Casey’s General Store. (Tonica News photo/Dave Cook)
