Engineering Agreement Approved for 17th St. Intersection Improvement

MARION – The Marion City Council Monday night approved the IDOT Preliminary Engineering Services agreement for intersection improvement at the intersection of 17th St. and Williamson County Pkwy.

The intersection will be upgraded and widened to create a clear line of vision of oncoming traffic for those traveling north on Williamson County Parkway and turning west onto 17th St.

Cody Moake, Chief of Staff for Marion Mayor Mike Absher, said engineering will be completely within 120 days. The bid process will then open sometime in June, with construction potentially beginning sometime in July.

Moake added without knowing the full scope of the project, he’s unsure about the construction’s duration.
