The purpose of the meeting is to introduce the project to the public, and to receive public input on any existing traffic concerns the public may have. The project involves improved transportation flow, safety and connectivity in Alton and Godfrey, Illinois. Improved connectivity will focus on IL Route 3/IL Route 111 (Homer Adams Parkway) and IL Route 255.

Representatives from IDOT and their consultants, Amec, Horner & Shifrin, and BLA, will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.
