Juneau Associates, Inc., P.C. Celebrates Opening of Alton Regional Multi-modal Transportation Center in Alton

Charlie Juneau, president of Juneau Associates, attended the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the new Alton Regional Multi-Modal Transportation Center on Friday, Sept. 15. At the event, Juneau was invited to speak about his company’s role in the development of the $23.0 million facility and recognized all the subconsultant companies involved in the project. The City of Alton received a Federal $13.5 million TIGER III grant to fund the infrastructure to accommodate a transportation center in conjunction with the Amtrak High-Speed Rail Station planned for Alton. The joint application was successfully selected as one of the 46 grants awarded nationally. The City of Alton also received approximately $7.0 million for the construction of the station and platform from the Federal Railroad Administrator for the project. Alton Mayor Brant Walker, State Senator Bill Haine, State Representative Dan Beiser and Senator Richard Durbin were in attendance, along with other federal, state and local officials.

I want to recognize Charlie Juneau and Juneau Associates for putting this whole concept down so it could go from construction to reality. Thank you. “

In 2014, Juneau Associates was selected to provide Design and Construction Engineering services for the Alton Regional Multimodal Transportation Center for the City of Alton.

Alton’s new transportation hub has an indoor 8,000 sq. ft. train station with a customer waiting area, restrooms, electronic informative signage, five bus bays with canopies, bicycle storage lockers, a 230 space pervious paver parking lot with surveillance cameras, and access roadways.

“I just want to thank everyone who has had a role in this project. This was a collaboration, as you have heard, on the local, state and federal level.... This project is the result of what you can do when Democrats and Republicans work together to get things done,” said former Illinois Congressman, Jerry Costello.
