The Illinois Department of Transportation, District 3 office,
will conduct an open house public hearing meeting regarding
the proposed widening, resurfacing and improvements to illinois
1/17 (Range Street) in Momence. The project is to extend from
the city’s north corporate limits and extend southerly
1.32 miles to illinois 114.
From the city’s north limits southerly to Third Street,
route 1/17 will be widened and resurfaced to accommodate one
13’ wide through lane for each direction of traffic
and one 12’ wide bi-directional turn lane. Between Third
and Route 114, the existing roadway will be resurfaced and
restriped resulting in one through traffic lane for each direction
of traffic, turn lanes at intersections, and the retaining
of most of the existing 7’ wide parking lanes. Left
turn storage capacity and turning radii will be increased
at the intersections with Second, Washington, and River Streets
and at the junction of Route 114. The project includes construction
of new curb and gutter, separation of storm and sanitary sewer,
and increasing turning radii at all intersecting local streets.
Eight parcels of additional right of way, totaling .043 acre,
will be required. A permanent easement along the north side
of Industrial drive for drainage purposes is also required.
IDOT personnel will be available to address questions and
comments citizens may have about the project. Related exhibits,
maps, and plans will also be available for public review.
There will be no formal presentation.
Disabled persons planning to attend this meeting, who are
in need of special accommodations, sign language interpreter
or other similar assistance, should notify Mr. Ted Fultz.
