Good News On 89 Bridge And Some Cost Savings

Some good news for our community about IDOT lowering the requirement of the City to purchase light fixtures for the 89 Bridge from six to five.

From the News-Tribune:
Spring Valley City Engineer Larry Good received a final summary of quantities for the bridge project from the Illinois Department of Transportation on Monday. 
At the city council meeting, Good said everything between the city and IDOT stayed the same in the agreements except for the amount of light fixtures Spring Valley will need to pay for project. Earlier, IDOT had stated Spring Valley would need to purchase six but now only requires the city buy five. 
Mayor Walt Marini said IDOT at one time said Spring Valley would need to buy eight light fixtures, which cost around $7,000 a piece. 
“That’s just that much less that we have to pay for,” Marini said.
