U.S. Sens. Tammy Duckworth and Dick Durbin, both Illinois Democrats, said $1 million is being made available in federal funding to the Illinois Department of Transportation and the city of Jerseyville for the Hollow Avenue Compacted Concrete Pavement Project.
The grant is intended to serve as an incentive for IDOT to accelerate the use of compacted concrete pavement, a technology that can be tailored to the specific needs of a project within the residential, commercial, and urban roadway sectors.
The funding comes through the Federal Highway Administration’s Accelerated Innovation Deployment Demonstration Program. The AID Demonstration Program funds projects that will implement innovative practices or technologies in highway transportation.
