Roadway Construction Update July 24, 2020

IDOT has started work on IL Routes 23 (Main Street) and 64 (State Street).   Manholes have been lowered within the downtown area in preparation for milling and paving.  Sidewalk ramps along IL Route 23 are under construction.

Curran will continue their work north on Route 23 into Genoa.  The next phase of downtown work is pavement milling and is tentatively scheduled for mid-August.   Please contact IDOT at 815-434-6131 with any questions or concerns related to this work.

The City’s MFT Contractor will start sawcutting concrete next week, with removals to follow soon after.   Individual notices will be passed out shortly.   NICOR continues to coordinate gas service relocations on the north side of Orchard Lane in preparation for the roadway contractor. 

City crews are continuing with roadway patching and painting light poles.

Please proceed with caution when traveling through construction zones and follow all traffic control devices.

Thank you for your patience during this construction season.  Please contact Mark Bushnell, City Engineer with any questions or comments. or by phone at 815-895-4557.
