Glen Carbon Board Approves Agreements for Traffic Control at New Development

By Kathy Turner

The Glen Carbon Village Board, on Tuesday, April 12, approved two intergovernmental agreements pertaining to traffic control at the new Orchard Town Center Development. The first is with the City of Edwardsville for traffic signals and roadway improvements.

The second intergovernmental agreement was also with Edwardsville for the Robinson and Troy Road intersections and pertains to maintenance of new traffic signals for the development. Maintenance costs will be split between the two municipalities with Glen Carbon covering 25% of the costs.

In other business, the Village Board approved a water and sewer license agreement with Madison Country Transit, also for the Orchard Town Center Development. This pertains to lines that will be accessed under MCT trails.

Finally, the Board approved the low bid for the 2022 Street Maintenance Program for the Village. Low bid was submitted by Christ Brothers. A public meeting to outline the planned street work for the summer will be held on Thursday, April 21 at the Senior Center beginning at 6 p.m. There will also be a Facebook page developed that will allow residents to track street improvements in their neighborhoods.

Engineers asked that residents make sure that anything that might impede the engineering work during street improvements be addressed prior to work in their neighborhoods. This would include anything on the property that might be encroaching on the right of ways such as dog fences and drains that run above ground from residential roofs. Such things will be discussed at the public meeting.

The next meeting of the Glen Carbon Village Board will be held on Tuesday, April 26, beginning at 7 p.m.
