Justin Kleinschmidt, P.E., of Sheppard, Morgan & Schwaab, Inc., provided these maps and descriptions of the work that is scheduled to be done.
Starting July 5, 2022, U.S. Route 67 (Piasa Street), from 20th Street/College Avenue south to 3rd Street in Alton will be closed for approximately one month barring any unforeseen circumstances and weather. The closures are for employee and contractor safety, so please take care when traveling in these areas.
Marked detours will be placed to safely guide motorists around the closure. Motorists should use caution when driving in the area and obey traffic signs, detour routes, and flaggers in the area. If possible, motorists should avoid the area.
Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changing conditions and signs in the work zones. Please obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
In addition to rehabilitating the sanitary sewer system, Illinois American Water will be investing approximately $1.5 million to replace approximately 1,200 feet of water main. Upgrading the water main will support water flow and pressure for continued water quality and fire protection.
Illinois American Water is working in collaboration with IDOT and the City of Alton for these closures. For more information about Illinois American Water please visit www.illinoisamwater.com.
