The picture is looking better for Western Illinois but is bleak for the rest of the nation. That’s what U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said during the grand opening ceremony for the public transit center in Macomb.
Rich Egger’s guest on this week’s Emphasis program is Gary Ziegler, Transit Director for McDonough County Public Transportation. They provide an audio tour of the new Macomb/McDonough County Transit Facility along East Pierce Street in Macomb.
The agency is renovating the former Porcelain Products Company factory into a storage and maintenance garage. The building will also house offices for dispatchers and administrators.
Ziegler said the final price tag is expected to be $11.2 million - $11.3 million.
