Illinois State Senate District 37 issued the following announcement on Oct. 9.

Senator Chuck Weaver and Representative Ryan Spain joined by local business leaders and elected officials October 14 to announce details of a major natural gas infrastructure improvement project in Southern LaSalle County.

Ameren Illinois recently completed a natural gas line upgrade from IL-71 and IL-251, south along IL-251 to just west of Tonica. The $5.4 million project replaced approximately 3.25 miles of 4-inch high pressure pipe with new 8-inch high pressure pipe, increasing capacity and pressure on this segment of the line as well as downline in communities like Wenona and Toluca.

Senator Weaver and Representative Spain, along with representatives from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, worked with Ameren Illinois leaders to accelerate the timeline for the project on request of local elected officials. The additional energy capacity created by the project is expected to pave the way for business and agriculture-industry growth in the region.
