Illinois Route 13 Widening
Route 13 serves as an economic artery connecting a number of Southern Illinois communities that span this stretch of road, prompting the Illinois Department of Transportation to widen it from 4 to 6 lanes. Existing development along the route also required reconstruction of a number of service drives and frontage roads. Lochgroup’s responsibilities included appraisals and negotiations for the acquisition of more than 50 parcels, and coordination of relocations of four businesses and an outdoor advertising sign. Lochgroup’s appraisers also provided testimony at eminent domain proceedings.
