Route 56 Streetscape Work Group:
In order for the City to make informed decisions on what enhanced streetscape improvements it would work with IDOT to implement in conjunction with the construction of the proposed Route 56 expansion project, the City Council established the Route 56 Streetscape Work Group in July of 2009. The Work Group is made up of representatives from the City Council, Plan Commission, Bike and Pedestrian Advisory Commission, Environmental Commission, America in Bloom and City staff.

With the approval of the City Council, the Work Group has enlisted the services of Hitchcock Design Group, a landscape architectural consulting firm from Naperville, to help them complete their assignment and coordinate with IDOT on streetscape improvement related issues.

Project Status (last updated February 21, 2018):  
The project was awarded to Thorne Electric on August 30, 2017.  A construction will begin in Spring 2018.
