FINAL MCORE PROJECT DESIGNS SELECTED
& AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC VIEWING AT OPEN HOUSE
A transit boarding island on Green Street, reconfigured Illini Union vehicle entrance and parking, all-way pedestrian crossing, and protected bicycle lanes are some of the new features to be developed by the Multimodal Corridor Enhancement (MCORE) Project starting in 2016.
The designs will be officially presented at a MCORE Project open house on Thursday, September 17 in the Alice Campbell Alumni Center from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. MCORE team members will staff informational displays for the five specific project areas and be available to answer questions.
Final project designs included careful consideration of feedback received on proposed concepts from stakeholder meetings and outreach, web form submissions at MCOREProject.com, and surveys from the MCORE Project open house in May.
The $35M MCORE Project, a partnership between the City of Champaign, City of Urbana, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the Champaign Urbana Mass Transit District (MTD) will impact all modes of transportation in critical campus areas including Green Street, Armory Avenue, White Street, and Wright Street. The MCORE Project is funded in part by a $15.7M Federal TIGER Grant from the United States Department of Transportation.
