Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Ameren construction crews said they'll be wrapping up a major safety project on a busy Quincy road by next week.

Local residents said crews have been working on the of 36th Street from Harrison Street to the Knights of Columbus property for the past week.

Crews said their goal is to be done by Wednesday.

Crews on the scene said they've been working to replace a gas main that used to run partially exposed along the side of the road.

They said by the time they're done they'll have the new line buried under the creek.

Local residents said they're happy to see the upgrades.

"If it helps the community and helps make everything run better and for safety, that's all I'm for," local mom Brooke Stokes said.

Stokes said she's also glad to see the project over with as residents of their subdivision will also get access to a entrance that was blocked by construction materials.

"I kind of keep forgetting and then I have to realize and turn around and go through the next subdivision to get out to 36th Street so no big deal," Stokes said.

WGEM reached out to Ameren Illinois for more information about the project but did not receive an answer.
