The Lincoln Trail Shopping District is the busiest retail development in the Metro East region. Wanting to create a more distinct streetscape and safer corridor, the City of Fairview Heights embarked on a multi-phase revitalization. Oates Associates helped improve traffic operations and circulation within the development for Phase 1, which is along Market Place.
Phase 1 improvements were considered for an American Council of Engineering Companies of Illinois Engineering Excellence Award. The project was awarded a Merit Award in the Small Projects category and subsequently won the Judges Choice Award, which recognizes the judges’ favorite project in each category.
Congratulations to the team and to the City of Fairview Heights for such a prestigious honor!
