Division Street Improvements - City of Altamont

In the Fall of 2016, the City of Altamont experienced a sewer collapse along Division Street, which is the main entrance and only truck access to ADM’s grain elevator in Altamont. The street improvement project, totaling approximately $942,000, to repair the damage includes a new 9” thick concrete street (from Main Street to 6th Street), curb and gutter, storm  sewer, and ADA intersection improvements. Milano & Grunloh Engineers, LLC together with South Central Illinois Regional Planning and Development Commission worked with the City to secure $163,309 in DCEO Grant funds, $521,588 in EDP funds, and $38,200 in TARP funds to repair the failing storm sewer, and crumbling concrete street.  Kieffer Brothers was the selected contractor and has recently begun demolition and replacement of the storm sewer. The project should be completed by September 2019, to allow the road to be open for the Fall harvest season. 

Milano & Grunloh Engineers, LLC is providing grant application and administration, surveying, design  engineering, material testing, and construction inspection services for the project.  We would like to thank the City of Altamont for their continued confidence and for allowing us to be a part of this vital project.
