Main Street Improvements
IMEG performed a preliminary Phase I study and Intersection Design Study (IDS) for the improvements to South Main Street from Cedar Street to Chestnut Street. This was performed to modify the alignment of IL 2. IMEG provided topographic survey and right-of-way plats, traffic counts, and a traffic study.
IMEG also prepared Phase II plans and specifications and conducted Phase III construction inspection. The scope included modifying IDOT plans, specifications and Traffic Management Plan (TMP). The scope also included preparing City of Rockford Phase II plans and specifications for their portion of South Main improvements using IDOT standards for Motor Fuel Tax (MFT) improvements. IMEG provided the resident engineer and inspectors for the construction of South Main. While the street needed improving, the changes now make it possible to also add a large hotel in downtown Rockford.
