It’s paperwork that’s keeping the Alton Multimodal Transportation Center project moving forward. That should change soon, with the installation of the water line extension from Oakwood to Golf Road scheduled for this fall. If all goes well, there may also be some dirt work before the end of then year, but realistically, that is not expected until 2015.
Alton Development and Housing Director Greg Caffey says per the terms of the grant with the Federal Railroad Administration, the project must be completed by the end of 2016.

Caffey says with the added traffic that is expected, it should provide a boost to other local businesses, including Alton Square Mall.
