Downtown Wood River

Click Here for a larger viewThe Downtown Business District is more than five City blocks of established restaurants, retailers and professional services. The City can boast of a downtown that has virtually no vacancies, affordable rents, attractive lease terms, extensive parking and many successful small businesses, some located in Wood River for more than 50 years. In 1992, the City partnered with private business owners to invest approximately $2 million in road, sidewalk, and façade improvements. Future plans for the downtown district include the construction of a nearly $1.5 million mass transit transfer center. Downtown remains an active part of the community with the Library, Post Office and City Hall located there.


IL-255 Exchange Corridor

Click Here for a larger viewApproximately 1000 acres of moderately developed sites are immediately visible and accessible from the northern extension of I-255. Exciting opportunities abound for retail, service, professional, tourism, hospitality, entertainment and convention business. Traffic counts have more than doubled, and continue to rise, within weeks of the opening of this exchange. Shoppers recognize the convenience of this major access point linking traffic to the Interstate system, the National Scenic Byway, the Madison County seat, Wood River and the region's commerce centers. This is a "Must See" location!







BP Amoco Redevelopment

The redevelopment of the former Amoco site makes hundreds of acres located in downtown Wood River available for development. This phased mixed-use development has become one of the largest redevelopment efforts within the State of Illinois with available incentives for development. Because the City was built around the site, its redevelopment makes the available acreage ideally suited for convenient regional access and visibility for retail, office and industrial growth.
