SWIC Metrolink Improvements


SUMMARY

Kaskaskia Engineering Group, LLC (KEG) performed QA/QC services for the construction of new bicycle and pedestrian facilities at Southwestern Illinois College (SWIC) in Belleville, Illinois. The project improvements consisted of the construction of a bridge over North Green Mount Road, which connected the existing trail around the SWIC Campus with the MetroBikeLink Trail. Bike trail additions also included a trail connection to the Brookhill neighborhood. The project also included roadway and pedestrian walkway improvements in and around the SWIC campus. These improvements included additional turn lanes at campus exits to mitigate congestion from students and the College MetroLink station, as well as amenities for the college, such as landscaping, lighted paths, retaining walls, and benches.
