Roadway Construction Update July 31, 2020

IDOT continues work on IL Routes 23 (Main Street) and 64 (State Street).   Manholes have been temporarily lowered within the downtown area and a majority current work is north of Sycamore.   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 completed sawcutting of concrete slated for removal and is underway on Roosevelt Court and Parker Street.  Concrete work will continue on Roosevelt Court followed by excavation of the road base.  Concrete work will move to other streets later next week.  The contractor is obligated to contact each resident whose driveway will be temporarily inaccessible.  NICOR and their subcontractor 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.
