2022 Concrete Street Improvements Project (Western Avenue from Kirby Avenue to Chevy Chase Drive)

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.
A and R Services will resume work on the City of Champaign’s project, weather permitting, on Tuesday, October 4, 2022.  At that time, the southbound lane of Western Avenue will be closed between Chevy Chase Drive and Normandy 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.
