As the City of Kankakee grew and became a prospect for substantial investment, the community was concerned about the appearance of a main entrance to the city. The mayor commissioned Piggush Engineering to beautify and demarcate the easterly entrance to Kankakee, an area designated for investment after the announcement of the Ricky Rockets Fueling Center project. In addition to improving landscaping and lighting, Piggush Engineering designed and constructed a 10-foot tall by 12-foot wide masonry structure featuring the “City of Kankakee” sign at the Northwest portion of the interchange along East Court Street. We also eliminated the existing Hammes Avenue connection to Court Street in conjunction with proposed IDOT Exit 312 Interchange improvements. The result is a highly functional and welcoming entrance to the city, where residents are hopeful for future investment.
