TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Downtown Topeka improvement efforts got a big boost.

At a news conference late Wednesday afternoon, campaign leaders announced Security Benefit pledged $250,000 to the "Imagine Downtown" campaign.

The donation pushes the private-sector fundraising campaign for Kansas Avenue improvements above the $1.8 million requested by the City of Topeka.

The Topeka City Council has approved $5 million for infrastructure improvements on South Kansas Avenue between 6th and 10th streets.

Construction should start in 2014, finishing up in 2015.
