$156 Million set aside for replacing the bridge over the Mississippi.

The Illinois Department of Transportation has updated its' 5-year plan for improving roads and bridges in the state, and it includes money for a new bridge at Quincy.

IDOT released the new five-year plan Friday for the years 2024 through 2029, which includes $156 million to replace the Memorial Bridge over the Mississippi River at Quincy. No time frame has been given for when work would start, and the cost would most likely be shared with the state of Missouri. IDOT says it plans to spend just over $19 million on US 136 in Hamilton to re-align 8 tenths of a mile of the highway as it approaches the Hamilton-Keokuk bridge, along with improvements to the railroad crossing and other improvements from the Mississippi River to Main Street in Hamilton. Other improvements in Adams County include over $15 million to re-surface 4 miles of Broadway and Highway 104 in Quincy and Adams County, along with replacing and modernizing traffic signals, ADA and other improvements from 12th Street to I-172. Some of the work set to be done next year in Adams County includes $3 million to re-surface part of I-172 from just north of Illinois 96 to the Pike County line, $2.6 million for new shoulders and a rumble strip on US 24 from just east of the Camp Point city limits to Illinois 94, as well as a left turn lane and improvements to the intersection. $1 million will also be spend next year to improve the bridge deck on the Bayview Bridge in Quincy, and $1 million has been set aside on how to rebuild Illinois 57 at Mill Creek at Marblehead. Another $6 million is in the plan for a new bridge on 57 at Mill Creek.

IDOT's also set aside $500,000 to help re-surface and install new sidewalks this year on Hampshire Street from 8th to 10th in Quincy, and $1.2 million to replace the bridge on East 2050th over McCraney Creek, four miles east of Plainville. The full spending plan for the area is available below.
