Collinsville To Receive $987,000 for Clay Street Project - Phase I


Governor Pat Quinn announced a $52.7 million investment in community transportation projects throughout Illinois.  The funding is through the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) - a federally-funded, competitive program that encourages transportation-related projects.


The ITEP program is designed to promote alternative transportation options, including bike and pedestrian travel, along with streetscape beautification. The federal funds are awarded competitively, and any local or state government is eligible to apply. Local matching funds are required, and work must begin on the projects within three years. For the current round of funding, the Illinois Department of Transportation received 232 applications requesting ITEP federal funding totaling nearly $260.5 million.


The City of Collinsville will receive $987,000 for Clay Street Phase I Streetscape Improvements.  These improvements include curb and sidewalk reconstruction to conform to current ADA guidelines, construction of decorative crosswalks, and installation of historic decorative pedestrian lighting as well as decorative signing, striping and planting of street trees. The project will be done in conjunction with resurfacing improvements along the same route.
