Public invited to meeting tonight about new I-255 interchange

There are 14 comments on the Belleville News-Democrat story from Nov 15, 2007, titled Public invited to meeting tonight about new I-255 interchange. In it, Belleville News-Democrat reports that:

A public meeting planned this evening in Dupo will give local residents a chance to view plans for a new interchange at Interstate 255 and Imbs Station Road.

'It introduces the project to the public and the area,' said Illinois Department of Transportation local roads engineer Rick Mauch. 'It's a forum for them to comment and look and see how it will be.'

Construction for the interchange is planned to begin next year.

The meeting will be held 5 to 8 p.m. at the Sugar Loaf Township Office, 240 S. Fifth St. in Dupo. Read more

Did anyone attend???? Any news? I was unable to. I am most concerned about the exit we will use. When they talk about us using another exit to get into town during the construction- is it only temporary, or are they planning to shut down exit 9 completely??? why would they do that?

They are going to shut down exit nine to the highway and we will have to use the new exit 8 to get into town. Exit eight is only a mile down from exit 9. Right now exit eight is so dangerous right there by the quarry just last week a man died because of the way its set up

Trying to find it on there website was a pain. I had read it and then had googled "I255 and IMB Station Road interchange".
It brought up an aerial pic with drawings of the interchange from there website.

The article in Illinois Business Journal talked like phase 1 should be complete by mid summer 2013. It sounds like that would be the survey, soil tests, ect.

Just more money waste in Illinois is what this amounts to.
