State & 9th Intersection Improvements (IDOT)

The IL-7 (9th Street) and IL-171 (State Street) Intersection Improvement project is a State project with local participation. The project will include:

  • Traffic signal replacement
  • 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.
