Design Team Named for Southern Illinois Multi Modal Station

City of Carbondale

The City of Carbondale has selected an architecture firm to design its new downtown transportation center on the east side of South Illinois Avenue.
Design Works and hmb Architects LLC will be in charge of the plans for the Southern Illinois Multi Modal Station. 

In November 2019, the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded the City a grant for almost 14 million dollars for the design and construction of the project. In December 2020, IDOT contributed an additional 2.8 million dollars towards the project.

The design process will include opportunities for the public to engage with the consultants and offer feedback regarding the final design. A preliminary design could be ready for review by the City Council later this year. Construction is expected to begin in fall 2022.
