Work on Illinois 57 in Quincy is set to expand onto Kentucky Street.

Quincy Utilities and Engineering Director Jeffrey Conte said the city asked the central services committee to approve additional spending related to work on Illinois 57.

That includes rebuilding Kentucky Street from 2nd Street to 3rd Street.

Conte said having the state do that portion of the work as part of its contract will be more cost effective.

"There's an interface there at third street with the Illinois 57 project, so we asked them to include in their contracts work on the storm sewers, the curb and gutter and ADA accessibility, so that's going to be done on the state's contract on 57," Conte said.

Conte said the 30 thousand dollar project will be paid by motor fuel taxes.
