Update – 06/16/2020
Over the last two weeks crews installed concrete curb and gutter throughout the project, including portions of the future median areas.
Work on extending the existing culvert south of Illinois Route 22 was also completed. Crews placed reinforcing steel and cast the concrete in place. The extension is to accommodate a new sidewalk which will be placed at a later date.
Noise abatement wall panels were placed at a number of project locations. Foundation drilling, along with concrete placement and installation of the remaining portions of the wall will resume when crews and equipment become available.
Other project work over the last couple of weeks included roadway excavation, grading, and aggregate placement for the balance of the future southbound Quentin Road. Asphalt placement will begin this week and will continue through next week. Please watch for trucks leaving and entering the road. Also anticipated this week, eastbound traffic on West Cuba Road will be jogged to the south so crews can construct the middle portion of the road.
