East Peoria West
Washington Street Expansion

Location: East Peoria, IL
Owner: City of East Peoria
Contract Amount: $24M

East Peoria is a city on the rise, and UCM is proud to have been asked to help them expand. We're undertaking a brownfield development effort to extend West Washington and Edmund streets, opening access to a former Caterpillar industrial site right on the Illinois river. The land was previously home to a cluster of manufacturing facilities, but had been largely abandoned due to poor access. By providing access and infrastructure, UCM will allow the city to expand, creating as many as 2,300 jobs on what was previously empty ground. This project has been featured in Construction Today magazine, and an electronic version of the article is available here:
