Due to the rail relocation project, by 2025, a new state-of-the-art Springfield Sangamon County Transportation Hub will open in downtown Springfield.
The rail project and Hub addition will require renovations to the Sangamon County Complex to improve accessibility. The first-floor atrium space will connect to the transportation center, and the new layout will provide easy access to many of the services that Sangamon County residents need.
This week, the Building and Grounds Committee approved an 8.5 million dollar responsible low bid from RD Lawrence to complete the renovations.
RD Lawrence is a local company with over 45 years of experience. And the bid was nearly 3 million dollars under the initial estimated cost.
The full Sangamon County Board will consider this item at the April meeting. For more information, detailed plans and videos are available on the Sangamon County Website.
