Green Mount Road construction project to begin in O’Fallon

 

O’FALLON, Ill. – Construction to expand Green Mount Road is scheduled to begin on Monday, Dec. 5, and last until November 2017, weather permitting.

There will be temporary lane restrictions during the project, but two-way traffic on Green Mount Road is expected to continue throughout the construction.

“Once completed, this project will vastly relieve traffic congestion at this important O’Fallon corridor and prepare O’Fallon for the opening of the HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Medical Campus,” Mayor Gary L. Graham said.

The Green Mount Road improvement between Regency Park and Highway 50 will include four-lanes with a planted median and intermediate turn lane. The project will also consist of a new signalized intersection at Cambridge Boulevard, which will serve as the main entrance to the new St. Elizabeth’s Medical Campus.

In addition to the street improvements, a 10-foot wide bicycle/walking path will be installed on the west side of Green Mount Road — providing a continuous pedestrian access route from Regency Park to the Family Sports Park and the Illini Bike Trail.

Current updates for this, and other construction projects can be found on the city’s website at www.ofallon.org under Quick Links, Construction Updates.
