In mid-April, Governor Quinn presented Illinois’ six year construction plan for the improvement and creation of highways and streets. These plans run from Fiscal Year 2014-2019 and detail all the planned projects across the state (Note: Fiscal Year 2014 begins July 1, 2013). Below are the highlights for local projects in Quincy and the surrounding areas:
Other major projects in the Quincy area are:
º Resurfacing, shoulder reconstruction and a milled rumble strip on 6 miles of U.S. 24, from 0.1 mile east of Ill. 96 north to 0.1 mile east of Old U.S. 24 in Fowler; culvert repairs and culvert replacements at Frazier Creek 1.7 miles west of Interstate 172; and crossing ditches 1.6 miles and 0.5 mile west of I-172. These projects are programmed during FY 2014-2019 at a cost of $5.7 million. Of this total, a culvert replacement is programmed at Frazier Creek Tributary, 1.7 miles west of I-172, in FY 2014 at a cost of $1 million.
º Resurfacing 6.4 miles of Ill. 57, from south of York Street in Quincy to 0.8 mile south of Laaker Road north of Marblehead in Adams County; a new bridge deck at Payson Avenue 0.5 mile south of U.S. 24; and bridge rehabilitation including a new bridge deck at Curtis Creek, 1.6 miles south of U.S. 24. These projects are programmed during FY 2015-2019 at a cost of $6 million.
º Widening and resurfacing on 2.4 miles of Ill. 96 from 0.2 mile north of the Adams County line to Old Ill. 57 in Pike County. Projects are programmed in FY 2014 at a cost of $4.8 million.
º Realigning a taxiway to meet current standards and increase safety at Quincy Regional Airport — the taxiway is too close to the runway to meet FAA regulations. The estimated cost for the project is $1,164,000.
Projects elsewhere in Western Illinois include:
º Land acquisition on U.S. 67/Ill. 110/336 (Northeast Macomb Bypass), from north of Springlake Road to U.S. 136 (east) northeast of Macomb, is programmed during FY 2015-2019 at a cost of $1.4 million.
º An archaeological survey from U.S. 136 northeast of Macomb to Illinois 101 and engineering for contract plans from north of Industry to Illinois 101 are programmed during FY 2015-2019 at a cost of $3.2 million. SAFETEA-LU provided $1.6 million in HPP funds for this corridor.
º Engineering for contract plans on Illinois 336 (Macomb to Peoria), from west of Hanna City to Interstate 474 in Peoria County, is programmed during FY 2015-2019 at a cost of $2.1 million. SAFETEA-LU provided $5.2 million in HPP funds and $2 million in TI funds for this corridor.
