Route 178 Project Set To Start

Posted by wlpo on January 26, 2011

The long awaited realignment of Route 178 thru Utica begins Monday.

Utility work starts Monday with crews beginning actual realignment roadwork February 28th.  Crews will be replacing the canal bridge, a new road will be built connecting Route 178 to Mill Street and the north end of Route 178 will be widened.  To realign the road, trees and homes will be demolished.

IDOT is having a public meeting about the realignment next Thursday at 6 at the Utica Village Hall.  They want to set up a traffic control plan since 178 will be under construction during Burgoo.

The realignment is an attempt to take truck traffic out of downtown Utica.  All the work is supposed to be done by October of next year.
