The work associated with the crossings at Alby Street in the Village of Godfrey (Madison County) and Terpening Road & David Lane in Piasa Township (Jersey County) includes roadway work at and adjacent to the railroad tracks, the installation of safety crossing protection features, and additional roadway improvements. Work at these crossing will be completed by IDOT and will include potential land acquisition. During construction, temporary crossing closures may be needed; notification will be provided in advance. This work has been coordinated with the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, as well as other state and federal agencies to account for potential impacts to natural and man-made resources, such as archaeological and historic resources, located within the crossing footprints. Attendees will have the opportunity to view project exhibits, provide comments, and meet one-on-one with IDOT and study team representatives. A brief presentation will be given at 5:30 p.m.
