The applicant(s), the City of East St. Louis, Attn: Deleta Hudson, City Manager, and North Cahokia Real Estate, LLC, Attn: Glen Slay, propose to construct an entranceway from IL Route 3, and an access road to serve the future Port of East St. Louis. The entrance and access road would provide the initial infrastructure needed for trucks and vehicular traffic. The current proposal offers to provide access to a site approximately 54 acres in size. The road would provide access to the site, and while not certain, future development is anticipated to follow. Approximately 1.05 acres of low quality palustrine emergent wetlands will be impacted for the entrance and access roads. The applicant proposes compensatory mitigation for the impacts to jurisdictional features. Wetlands will be mitigated onsite, or off-site through wetland banking. The project is located in the City of East St. Louis & Village of Sauget, St. Clair County, Illinois. Specifically, the project is found between IL Rte 3 and 8th St / Mississippi Avenue and the left descending bank of the Mississippi River between approximate river miles 178 and 179. The Public Notice opens April 8, 2014, and closes April 29, 2014.
