In 2015, Mercyhealth launched the biggest project - $505 million to be exact - the region has seen in decades. The City of Rockford chose Fehr Graham to oversee the construction of Mercy Way and Lyford Road to prepare for the arrival of a new Mercyhealth hospital.

Our team oversaw the design and construction of Mercy Way and Lyford Road from Riverside Boulevard to Spring Brook Road. Fehr Graham observed construction on upgraded traffic signals, a roundabout, water and sewer, multi-use path, storm sewer, two structures, wetlands and endangered species, streetscape and landscape, irrigation and lighting.

Conveniently located off Interstate 90, Javon Bea Hospital-Riverside created jobs and sparked growth in Rockford and Loves Park.
Our team's proposal met the deadline and the design fee was nearly $100,000 under budget.

Fehr Graham also partnered with the Cities of Rockford and Loves Park, Mercyhealth, Winnebago County and Illinois Department of Transportation on the project. Construction was completed in January 2019.
