As part of the City’s 2022 Concrete Street Improvements Project, the pavement on Western Avenue from Kirby Avenue to Chevy Chase Drive will be reconstructed. In conjunction with the City’s work, Illinois American Water Company will be replacing water main along this portion of Western Avenue. A and R Services will be the contractor for both the City of Champaign’s work and Illinois American Water Company’s work, under separate contracts.
Work will begin on Monday, May 16, weather permitting. At that time, the southbound lane of Western Avenue will be closed between Kirby Avenue and Chevy Chase Drive. This section of Western Avenue will temporarily become one lane, one-way northbound traffic only. This work is scheduled to be completed by November 13, 2022.
