It would cost an estimated €470,000 to complete the rejuvenation project on The Square in Durrow, Cllr James Kelly was told at a Borris-in-Ossory/Mountmellick Municipal District meeting.
Cllr Brendan Phelan believed funding for the project would have to come from central government.
Senior Executive Engineer Paul McLoughlin said the Council was looking at the current road design in Durrow.
Substantial work has been carried out in the scenic village since 2013 when an extensive programme of works costing up to €700,00 got underway.
The project has been undertaken by Laois County Council, and the Durrow Development Forum.
