Capitol City Motel Coming Down


Springfield IL – A motel will be taken down, to make way for road improvements. The Capitol City Motel on 1620 North Ninth Street is one of five buildings being demolished.


IDOT will work to widen the road in that area to ease the sharp curve, where Ninth Street meets Peoria Road. Improvements are need in that area, due to accidents. The project should be completed by the end of October.


IDOT says the 875 thousand dollar project will improve visibility for drivers in the area. Federal funding will pay 788 thousand dollars of the project, and the state will pay the remainder.
