West State Street Is Now Open


ROCKFORD, Ill. –  After months of reconstruction, the City of Rockford and the Illinois Department of Transportation announce that West State Street from Day Avenue to Independence Avenue is now open. The road has been reconstructed from two to four lanes with new storm sewers, signals, sidewalks and a multi-use path.

“I want to thank IDOT for the incredible partnership on this $6.5 million project,” says Mayor Tom McNamara.

“This work has transformed the west entrance to our city and now provides a warmer welcome for our residents and visitors.”

“Remaking West State Street is a top priority at IDOT and one of our more successful projects because of the input, coordination and teamwork with our local and community partners in Rockford,” said Illinois Transportation Secretary Omer Osman. “Investing in infrastructure can have transformational impacts and improve quality of life for an entire region. The West State Street project is no better example of that.”

A formal ribbon cutting will take place in the coming weeks.
