Monticello Pool Bathhouse
Monticello, Illinois

At the urging of the Illinois Historic Preservation Office, Monticello hired Kennedy Hutson Associates and Daily & Associates Engineers to develop a successful application package, resulting in a $1.3 million grant for the implementation of a streetscape project for the historic downtown.

Following the schematic design developed for the grant proposal, the streetscape introduced historic street lighting, street trees with metal grates and ornamental railings throughout the downtown area.  All utilities were buried and paving was replaced in an ornamental pattern and accomplishing handicapped accessibility to the wide variety of historic structures. 

Care was given to react to existing building and lot lines to ensure consistency.  As a final piece, a revised circulation and parking plan was implemented throughout the downtown in order to slow traffic and increase pedestrian safety.
