ODOT, City and Design Engineer Take Walking Review Of Collinsville Main Street
Previous Coverage:
Per City Manager Pam Polk at the July 3, 2006 commission meeting the project is on target for a Jan. 2007 start.
There are already plenty of beautiful sights on Collinsville's Historic Main Street but the design continues for an improved view via a TEA-21/ODOT/Vision 2025 funded 2 block project. Officials took a walking tour (Friday June 30, 2006) of the project area (12th to 10th Street) discussing design options and issues.
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: The Phase 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.
