On Wednesday, August 5, 2020, the Multimodal Corridor Enhancement Project (MCORE) will continue the installation of storm sewer across Springfield Avenue at Wright Street, with work shifting to the east leg of the intersection.
Starting August 5, the east leg of the intersection of Springfield Avenue and Wright Street will be closed to allow for the storm sewer installation across Springfield Avenue. Eastbound Springfield Avenue traffic will be diverted north onto Wright Street and up to University Avenue. Westbound Springfield Avenue traffic will be diverted north onto Goodwin Avenue and up to University Avenue.
During this phase of construction, it is highly recommended that vehicles traveling through campus seek alternate routes across Wright Street. The work will take approximately one to two weeks to complete, depending on weather.
The City of Champaign appreciates the cooperation and patience of property owners, residents, and visitors of the Campustown area during this important project. Additional updates will be provided as the project progresses. For additional information visit www.mcoreproject.com.
