A major milestone is within reach with the Alton Regional Multimodal Transportation Center project.  The Alton City Council has approved a contract amendment with Juneau Associates, Inc. that will allow them to proceed with work associated with the design and construction of the project.

Alton Development and Housing Director Greg Caffey tells The Big Z that means earth could be moving on the project later this month.

Per the terms of the grant with the Federal Railroad Administration, the project must be completed by the end of 2016.  Caffey says the first thing to be done will be the rough site grading and installation of some storm sewers, which he says should be done by the end of November, weather permitting.
