Adding left turn lanes on IL 171
Reconstructing on-street parking
Providing new ADA compliant sidewalks and crossings within the project area
Utility relocations and watermain replacement (watermain replacement is 100% City cost)
Filling the old coal vaults that currently reside under the sidewalks as a safety measure for both pedestrians and building owners. There was a public meeting held on August 26, 2015. Below is the Brochure and exhibits as provided at the meeting.
