The intersection at Chicago and Douglas Streets will be closed Tuesday, Oct. 17, as Elgin City crews continue to work to separate its wastewater and storm water sewer systems. It’s expected that the intersection will be closed for about two days.
Additionally, Chicago Street, from Douglas to Spring Streets, will be reduced to only one lane for about two weeks. Parking along Chicago Street will be prohibited, however, access to businesses will be available.
The construction is part of the City of Elgin’s $1.3 million 2006 Combined Sewer Separation Project approved by Council last year. The Combined Sewer Separation Program will incrementally separate wastewater and storm water sewers over the next 15 years.
