Work continues on the Central Business District Street Resurfacing and Streetscape project with the installation of a new water main on Spring Street between Chicago and DuPage Streets the week of April 30.
Northbound traffic on Spring Street will be diverted east on DuPage Street to Villa Street. Southbound traffic on Spring Street will be able to proceed as usual. Two-way traffic will be maintained on Grove Street south between Chicago and Prairie Streets, however, motorists wishing to travel northbound on Spring Street may use Grove Street as an alternative.
Sidewalk, curb and gutter restoration on Grove Street south between Chicago and Fulton Streets also continues. To ensure the work is completed as timely as possible, parking will be restricted on South Grove this week. Motorists will be able to park on the west side of the street by Thursday, May 3 with parking fully restored by Monday, May 7.
Alternative parking is available in the Spring Street Parking Deck on Chicago and Spring Streets and at the Fulton Street Parking Deck, one black east of Spring Street on Fulton Street. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the construction project.
While two-way traffic will be maintained, flaggers will be directing a single lane of traffic around the construction at times. Motorists are asked to pay special attention when traveling through this area or to avoid the construction zone by using alternate routes.
Specific questions regarding the construction can be directed to Shelley Costello with TranSystems at 847-871-3185. For general information on the project, contact Steve Pertzborn, Elgin’s Senior Engineer, at 847-931-5955.
