During the 2023 construction season the City’s Public Works Department will manage more than $7 million of road construction work and rebuild or repair numerous streets across Champaign. This work includes concrete street patching, asphalt repaving, and complete concrete street reconstruction. Information about individual projects will be issued via press releases, the City’s website, and social media prior to the commencement of work. More detailed information about the location and scope of work for each project can be found on the City’s interactive construction map on the City’s website (champaignil.gov/maps).
These road improvement projects are being funded through various revenue sources including the City’s Capital Improvement Fund, Local Motor Fuel Tax, State Motor Fuel Tax, Hotel/Motel Tax, and the State of Illinois’ Local REBUILD Illinois bond funds.
During construction, contractors will attempt to minimize the inconvenience to residents and motorists as much as possible. Drivers are encouraged to pay close attention to construction signs, message boards, and traffic control devices that will be in place throughout the duration of each project. Residents can receive construction news alerts and updates by signing up on the City’s website (champaignil.gov/subscriptions).
