Shutdowns, Lane Changes Continue For Route 47 Widening
Tuesday will see lane changes on Main Street, according to the latest schedule. They're supposed to be made Church Street to just east of Janice Drive. On top of that some Main Street parking is supposed to be eliminated between Route 47 and Church Street. Public parking lots will remain open on Main Street at the railroad tracks and the one next to Old Village Hall on Coral Street.
The week following underground work is scheduled to begin at Main Street and Route 47. That work is supposed to be performed within the paved street. Temporary pavement that has been recently placed at the intersection will provide a detour for vehicles through the work zone but material delivery and staging will be be going on the whole time. That's expected to cause "substantial traffic delays".
Storm sewer work is still inching north from the south end of the project area and crews are still working on the box culvert at Kishwaukee Creek to expand it to four lane size.
