The Illinois Department of Transportation, Region 6, proposes to replace the bridge that spans the Illinois River in Meredosia, Illinois. The project involves removing and replacing the existing bridge at Meredosia carrying Illinois Route 104 over the Illinois River in Morgan County. A new structure will be built approximately 256 feet north (upstream) from the existing bridge. Once the new structure is built, the old structure will be removed in accordance with an approved removal plan. The impacts to waters of the United States (WOUS) include temporary impacts to 0.85 acres, and permanent impacts to 2.17 acres, for a respective total of 3.02 acres. The applicant has proposed to mitigate for project impacts at 1.5:1 ratio at the pre-approved LaGrange Mitigation Bank. The Corps will make a determination of appropriate mitigation, upon review of all submitted information. The purpose of the project is to provide transportation facility across the Illinois River that is reliable and meets current design standards.
The proposed project site is located at Meredosia, in Pike and Morgan Counties, Illinois. The proposed work would occur on both sides, and over, the Illinois River in Section 6, Township 3 South, Range 1 West.
The Public Notice opens January 24, 2014 and closes February 14, 2014.
