Denmark Road Project Expected to Advance Next Year

A multi-million dollar sanitary sewer and road improvement project along Denmark Road in Danville is expected to advance next year.  But City Engineer Sam Cole told the Danville Area Transportation Study Group’s Technical Committee Thursday that only the sanitary portion of the project is expected to see construction work in 2020.  Cole says it will likely be next winter before the roadway portion of the project goes out for bids.

Cole also said the project is undergoing extensive review.  In May the Danville City Council approved a more than $6-million dollar contract with Cross Construction Company for the project.  But the work was then delayed because of a delay in getting a loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.

The project is expected to take two construction seasons to complete once the work begins, according to Cole.  It stretches from the intersection where Winter and Logan Avenue meet Denmark Road…west across the Dallas Bowman Bridge over Lake Vermilion to the Old Ottawa Road area.

It includes plans to install a new sanitary sewer line and a pedestrian bridge adjacent to the bridge over Lake Vermilion.
