MARION – The Marion City Council is expected to discuss with possible approval the IDOT Preliminary Engineering Services agreement for intersection improvement at the intersection of 17th St. and Williamson County Pkwy. when it meets tonight at 6:30 at City Hall.
The city council approved a resolution in November committing local funds to necessary improvements at the intersection. Officials said those traveling north on Williamson County Pkwy. to turn west on 17th St. do not have a clear line of vision for oncoming traffic. The intersection will be upgraded and widened to make the necessary changes.
The city will commit to appropriating available city funds of 20 percent of the cost of the work. Eighty percent will be funded through state roadway improvement funds.
