Southern Illinois Multimodal Station (SIMMS) is a project that has local and regional significance. The proposed SIMMS will serve a population that is currently underserved and demonstrates a greater need than the Carbondale population as a whole.
The City is in need of improvements to several major roads (Giant City, Marion, Oak, Pleasant Hill, Poplar, and Washington) that provide access to key education, healthcare, and economic institutions. These roads establish a vital transportation network that is no longer in a state of good repair and that needs immediate investment to make them more reliable and sustainable for our residents. The proposed resurfacing includes milling of the old surface, pavement and curb patching as necessary, ADA curb ramp upgrades, installation of new hot-mix asphalt paving, installation of pavement markings, and appurtenant construction. In addition, where bicycle infrastructure is currently absent and the existing pavement width will allow for a road diet.
