City Council approves Transportation Plan

City Council approves Transportation Plan

1 week, 6 days ago by Scott Hardy

20-year plan will guide officials on planned improvements

The Quincy City Council has approved a proposed roadmap for the city's future transportation plans.

The City Council Monday night approved an ordinance that adopts the Quincy Regional Transportation Plan, finished earlier this year. The plan calls for adding roundabouts at 48th and State, 24th and Harrison and 36th and Columbus Road. It also calls for upgrading State Street from 24th to 36th Streets, and for converting 3rd, 4th, Hampshire, Vermont, Jersey and York Streets in The District from one-way to two-way streets. It also calls for upgrading Illinois 57 south of Quincy from two-lanes to four.

The plan can now be submitted to the Illinois Department of Transportation. City officials have long said that with the plan, IDOT will give the city further consideration in planning for future projects, including a replacement for the Memorial Bridge. IDOT has said they prefer to have the bridge crossing the Mississippi River join at York Street.
