Portion of G.I.'s College Street to close

Some say College Street cuts through the GISH campus (NTV News)

Part of a street that runs through one school's property will close.

The Grand Island City Council voted 5 to 4 Tuesday to close a section of College Street that runs between Grand Island Senior High School and the football field.

One council member abstained from vote, leaving Mayor Jeremy Jensen to break the tie.

The school has wanted to shut off the section of street so they can unite the campus and increase safety for students.

Opponents of the closure say the move is a land grab by the school district.
