Highlights of the IDOT Six Year Construction Plan: Southeastern Illinois


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 Southeastern Illinois:

· Resurfacing 6.5 miles and bridge deck overlay on Interstate 64, from 6.5 miles east of the Wayne County line to 0.4 mile west of Illinois 1 in White County, are programmed in fiscal year 2014 at a cost of $12 million.

· Bridge replacement, engineering for contract plans and construction engineering on Interstate 64 at Wabash River in White County are programmed during FY 2015-2019 at a cost of $71 million. Indiana and Illinois will share the cost equally, with Illinois being the lead agency.

· Resurfacing 13.2 miles, bridge replacements and culvert replacements on Illinois 1/14, from Grayville to Carmi, are programmed during FY 2014-2019 at a cost of $5.2 million. Of this total, bridge replacement over Crooked Creek is programmed in FY 2014 at a cost of $1.1 million.

· Resurfacing 11.4 miles on Illinois 14, from Hamilton County line to Illinois 1 in Carmi, is programmed in FY 2014 at a cost of $3.2 million.
