Howard Street Bridge Rehabilitaton
The Howard Street bridge rehabilitation project is well underway. The contractor has completed repairs to the north half of the bridge and is now working on the southern half. It is anticipated the project will be completed by mid September, weather permitting. During construction, a traffic shift is in place, however one lane of traffic remains available for each direction. This project was funded by the Illinois First Grant program.
Central Avenue Reconstruction
Central Avenue should be fully open for traffic in mid-September. This project was from Jarvis Street to Howard Street. Landscaping restoration and punch list items will still remain to be completed this fall.
