Fullerton Road Retail Development
LOCATION: Belleville/Swansea, IL
CLIENT: FKG Oil Company
The Fullerton Development is a 5.73 acre commercial site in Belleville at the intersection of IL Route 161 with Fullerton Road/North Belt West. The development includes a gas station with convenience store and car wash. Two commercial entrances are proposed, one along IL Route 161 and one along Fullerton Road. The project includes reconfiguration of the IL Route 161 median to allow for a left-turn lane into the development and reconfiguration of the southbound left-turn lane at the intersection of IL Route 161 with Fullerton Road/North Belt West.
Scope of Work:
TWM worked with IDOT on behalf of the developer to coordinate access for the commercial development. TWM completed a traffic impact study for the proposed entrances along IL Route 161 and Fullerton Road. Engineers analyzed the traffic impact of the proposed development to the adjacent roadways, including the need for the construction of left- and right-turn lanes and traffic signals at the two entrance locations as may be warranted to accommodate the traffic generated by the new development. The reconfiguration of IL Route 161 median and southbound left-turn lane at the intersection of IL Route 161 with Fullerton Road/North Belt West is also being analyzed per IDOT’s request. This study also analyzes the operating levels of service of the proposed intersections created by the commercial entrances with adjacent roadways and the existing intersection of IL Route 161 with Fullerton Road/North Belt West.
