Sycamore Street Construction Update 9/11/20

Sycamore Street Construction Update  9/11/20

Weather has forced contractors to delay previously scheduled work.

Curran (IDOT) is completing work on IL Routes 23 (Main Street) and 64 (State Street).   Please continue to watch for barricades at manholes within the pavement area.  Final surface is tentatively slated for next week with downtown paving rescheduled for Wednesday September 16th and/or  Thursday September 17th both during off peak hours (6PM to 4 AM).  Please contact IDOT at 815-434-6131 with any questions or concerns related to this work.    The crosswalks will be stamped and repainted after paving.

Schroeder Asphalt (City’s MFT contractor) will pave Parker Street, Croatian Court and Orchard Lane next week.   On street parking is available this weekend. 

Cracksealing of various City Streets will begin in September.

City crews are continuing with water system maintenance, manhole adjustments, and stormwater related maintenance.

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 at or by phone at 815-895-4557.
