As part of the City’s 2018 Concrete Street Improvements Project, the pavement on Green Street from Prospect Avenue to New Street is being reconstructed. The City’s contractor for the project, Kinney Contractors, will continue working to complete the project in a timely manner.
Beginning at approximately noon on Friday, July 20 the westbound lane of Green Street between Prospect Avenue and Pine Street will be closed. This section of Green Street will temporarily become one way, eastbound only. A marked detour route for the westbound traffic will be provided.
Due to the nature of the work it will be necessary to close driveways to complete the work. Advanced notice will be given at least 48 hours prior to closure of driveways. Residents may not have access to driveways for up to 7 days.
Please pay close attention to construction signs, traffic control devices, and marked detours. Please do not park on the street near the construction site or in areas that are posted “No Parking.” Please proceed cautiously through construction zones and use alternate routes whenever possible. The contractor will attempt to complete construction activities as soon as possible to minimize any inconvenience to the residents in the areas of construction.
The City of Champaign would like to thank you for your cooperation and patience during this construction season. A map showing this location along with all 2018 City Engineering Division projects can be found at www.champaignil.gov/pwd, click on “Construction Map”.
