Traffic Hell: Alton Road Reconstruction Begins Today
The end result will certainly be worthwhile in the long run as one of the main aims is to provide a new drainage system for stormwater, which hopefully means portions of Alton will no longer be a foot underwater every time it rains heavily. New roadways, sidewalks, signage, traffic signals, street lights, road markings and landscaping will also be installed.
The areas from Fifth Street to Michigan Avenue will be affected during the project.
The area from Dade Boulevard to Michigan will be the first to see construction.
Here's a map showing the areas that will be affected during the first few months.
