Results of a Feasibility Study to investigate existing conditions on MacArthur Boulevard, from Wabash Avenue to South Grand Avenue are available. The study was conducted by IDOT & the City of Springfield.
The goal of the study is to determine the general scope of improvements desired for this section of unmarked State Highway, and to determine a preliminary estimated cost for future improvement(s).
The study includes a first look at the alternatives to begin to determine alternatives that should be studied further during a Phase 1 Planning Study. Access along the corridor would be reviewed at that time. The impacts and costs shown are approximate and will be further evaluated
if/when the project progresses into a Phase 1 study.
