IDOT, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, has initiated the Preliminary Engineering and Environmental Study of the Joe Page Bridge, which carries Illinois 16/100 over the Illinois River to connect Calhoun and Greene counties. The Phase I study will look at options for the rehabilitation or replacement of the existing bridge. The purpose of the meeting is to provide an overview of the project, including conceptual corridors for viewing and comment, and obtain public input.

Handouts and display boards will be available for public review, as well as information regarding engineering, land acquisition and environmental issues. Representatives from IDOT and the project consultant, Hanson Professional Services Inc., will be available to discuss the project and answer questions. The meeting will be held in an open house format. No formal presentation will be made.

The public is invited to make a comment for consideration in the project design. A comment form will be provided at the meeting and via the project website at www.joepagebridge.com. The public can mail comments directly to 1102 Eastport Plaza Drive, Collinsville, Ill., 62234. Comments may also be submitted via email to Sarah.Wiszkon@illinois.gov on or before April 4.
