Ottawa Looking At Easier Way To Cross I-80

Posted by wlpo on August 16, 2013

As successful as they’ve already been, you can’t blame Ottawa for going after more grant money.

The city is now asking for a two million dollar state grant to make a pedestrian bridge over Interstate 80.  City officials think people biking or walking over I-80 on the overpass now are put at risk.

Ottawa tried for this same ITEP, or Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program grant a few years ago but were denied.  If they get it this time, the local match would be 400 thousand dollars.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
