Farmington Road Improvements

Farmington Road Improvements


WHKS provided Phase 1 and 2 engineering services for improvements to the Farmington Road and Kickapoo Creek Road intersection, which is located approximately ¾ miles west of the West Peoria City limits.

The project was challenging because Farmington Road intersects two major roadways, two railroad tracks, and crosses Kickapoo Creek. The new bridge replacement and roadway approaches to the bridge maintained traffic during construction.

Because the improvements are in a densely populated area, a traffic analysis and geometric improvement study were required. The project corridor had a history of flooding which was analyzed so that drainage improvements could be made at the same time as the roadway construction.

Provisions for bicycles and pedestrians was incorporated into the design.


  • Roadway and bridge design
  • Environmental Assessment
  • Intersection Design Studies
  • Location Drainage Study
  • Project Report
  • Traffic analysis
  • Structure Geotechnical Report
  • Type, Size, and Location drawings


The existing intersection of Farmington Road and Kickapoo Creek Road was located at the end of the existing bridge. The intersection with Kickapoo Creek Road was relocated to the west to simplify and economize the bridge design requirements.
