The Alton City Council has approved the city to seek bids for work on the new Multimodal Transportation Center. The facility being built on Golf Road in Alton is expected to kick into high gear soon. Bids should go out the first week of February, with work hopefully starting in April.
Alton Director of Development and Housing Greg Caffey tells The Big Z these bids will cover a large portion of the project.

At the next city council meeting later this month, the council will consider a lease agreement with Union Pacific Railroad so the city can build the platform, as Union Pacific owns the right-of-way.
