Old Alton/Edwardsville Road
This project will be a total reconstruction. Existing pavement will be removed and replaced. New storm sewers, sanitary sewers, and waterlines will be installed. The current cost estimate for the project is 1.4 million dollars. Preliminary Engineering has begun. Construction could begin as soon as the summer of 2023. It will take approximately 4 months to construct. Project is currently funded entirely with City funds.
Wood River Avenue Phase 1 and 2
This is a rotomill and resurfacing project on Wood River Avenue from East Alton City limits to Ferguson Avenue. All intersections will be upgraded to handicap accessible. There will be new striping for this length of road. The current construction cost estimate is $1,000,000. Project design has been completed and has a hopeful bid date sometime between July of 2023 and June of 2024. This timeline depends on the State St Sewer Separation Project. It cannot be constructed until the Wood River Ave part of that project is completed. Project construction costs are covered 75% by the State and 25% by the County. Project construction would then hopefully begin within a month of bidding. Again, timing with the State St sewer separation project will affect when this project is to be constructed.
State St Waterline Phase 2
This project will continue the new 12” water main on State St and will run from Elbe to Cotter then continue to Wood River Ave on Edwardsville Rd. Engineering has been completed. The total project cost is approximately $150,000. Construction will tentatively begin July 2023.
Manhole Lining Phase 3&4
This project will line approximately manholes and pipes that are in desperate need of rehabilitation. The lining will re-establish structural stability within the manholes and pipes and stop the manholes and pipes from leaking. Most of the manholes are brick and the old pipes are clay tile. All are well into 80 years of age. The City has been making inventory of remaining manholes to be done and will soon move to pipe lining. The current project cost estimate is approximately $150,000. The next phase of linings will begin July 2023.
6th St Rotomill and Resurfacing
This is a rotomill and resurfacing project on 6th St from State Route 143 to the city limits with Roxana. Intersections will be upgraded to be handicap accessible. Project was bid in June 2022. Project construction costs are covered 100% by the additional MFT money the City is receiving over the next 3 years. Project is complete.
Edwardsville Rd Phase 1
This is a rotomill and resurfacing project on Edwardsville Rd, from East Alton Village limits to approximately 2nd Street in Wood River. Intersections will be upgraded to be handicap accessible. Project is a 24/25 project and could bid as early as June 2024. Project construction costs are covered 75% by the State and 25% by the County. Project has begun preliminary engineering. The total construction cost is estimated to be $630,000.
