Western Illinois University partnered with the City of Macomb on the Adams Street/Lafayette (I-67) project. Outlined in the WIU Campus Master Plan, this location was identified as a gateway to campus.  Facilities Management enhanced this space by adding the campus standard column with the "W" on it, along with a light pole, pavers, and plantings. WIU paid for everything within the center median on Adams and will be the caretakers of this space.


As of September 15, 2015, the median is essentially complete. Final follow-up items include: brushing polymeric sand in the pavers, installing a light pole fixture and campus banners, installing the "W" on the column, and installing final plant materials and stone mulch.
