|Many of the features of the future Main Street beautification project are included in the following text from the city's agreement with LandPlan Consultants, Inc.|
|Scope of Project:
1 Collinsville Main Street Project is located on Main Street (US 20) and
extends from the west side of 10th Street to the east side of 12th Street.
New sidewalks with a brick accent will provide much needed improvement
providing a smooth, level walking serface which will be handicap accessible.
Small curb extensions will be added at the corners of 10th, 11th and 12th
and will include shrub plantings, benches and litter receptacles. A total
of ten street trees will be installed along Main and have been selected
to provide a high canopy so not to obstruct views to store fronts. An
underground irrigation system will be installed to ensure plant health
and reduce on going maintenance needs.
New lighting will consist of Halophane Esplanade tear drop fixtures on new period style poles and will be located in such a manner to provide the required highway illumination. In addition, 110 V. receptacles will be installed at the base of the lights and near all trees for use by the City for various activities along Main Street. Cast iron curb inlets will replace the existing original inlets providing better drainage throughout the project.
