“These improvements are a long time coming,” County Board member Tom McRae of Bethalto and chair of the Transportation Committee said.

McRae said he is pleased with the work on Seiler Road. He said the road is an important corridor in Northern Madison County and the reconstruction, which included asphalt paving and storm drainage improvements, will make the road much safer.

Highway Engineer Mark Gvillo said that currently utility companies are working in the area in preparation for the next phase. He said the county was also working in conjunction with Fosterburg Water District

County Board member Ray Wesley of Godfrey said the reconstruction of Seiler Road is part of an ongoing effort to enhance public safety as well as take care of the normal “wear and tear” maintenance of roadways.

“Our goal is to make our roadways safer for drivers,” Wesley said. “I believe we are achieving that and helping to prevent traffic accidents.”
