Rockford Construction Continuing At Major Intersection
It's not over yet but the North Main construction project is almost complete except for one of it's busiest intersections. Main Street and Riverside Blvd. is the light at the end of the tunnel but will be under construction until September or October.
According to WREX, the end goal is to make the intersection safer.
"They're going to widen the lanes in some areas, they're going to put in a multi-use path which is a 10-foot wide pedestrian-bicycle path that's off the roadway, a sidewalk on the other side of the road, decorative street lighting, decorative traffic signals," Capital Improvements Program Manager, Timothy Hienkens said. "They're going to make the intersection wider and safer to use."
Main and Riverside will be down to one lane in al directions until the project is completed.
