A major milestone will be recognized tomorrow with groundbreaking on the Alton Regional Multimodal Transportation Center project. The city has been working on the project for a number of years, getting the paperwork in order. Now it is time for the part of the project where everyone will be able to watch the progress.
The groundbreaking will take place at 10am at #1 Golf Road, and the public is invited to attend. Alton Mayor Brant Walker tells The Big Z there is already developers looking at the possibilities the surrounding land will offer.

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