The latest stretch of Highway 255 to open in Godfrey takes place on Friday, but before the ribbon cutting, local residents are invited to take an "official" stroll on the stretch between Seminary and Humbert Road.   The Riverbend Growth Association invites people to run, walk, ride their bikes or just come take a look at the road this Thursday starting at 4:30pm.

RBGA President Monica Bristow:


Bristow comment

Parking will be available just off of Seminary on a side road that will be designated by IDOT, so look for signs.  The highway itself will open this Friday October 26, following a ribbon cutting at Noon. The stretch from Humbert to Highway 67/111 is expected to open by Thanksgiving.
