Project Introduction

The scope of work for the project is the development of a Corridor Transportation Study and Economic Development Strategy for the Auburn Street Corridor in Rockford from the western City limits (Springfield Avenue) to the eastern terminus at Main Street (IL-2), approximately 3.33 miles in length.

Project Goals

  • Focus on transportation solutions to improve pedestrian safety, reduce injuries and fatalities, and beautify the corridor​
  • Inform the community on how to move forward, beyond the study, while achieving the goals of the community​
  • Focus on improvements within the right of way such as sidewalks and lighting, utilizing a complete streets mentality such that the right of way improvements are assets to the adjacent neighborhoods and improve corridor appeal​
  • Identify the potential future uses of vacant industrial buildings along the corridor​
  • Identify measures and strategies to update aging infrastructure along the corridor that serve as catalysts for roadway improvements​
  • Understand that the corridor should be cohesive, while noting the different characteristics of each section​
  • Provide a conceptual cost for right of way improvements for future programming​
