Access to Route 31 from E. Highland Avenue through downtown Elgin is now open. Please use caution as there are still construction barricades in this area prohibiting access to Highland Avenue west of Route 31. The traffic signals at Highland and Route 31 are now in operation.
The city’s Highland Avenue sewer separation project continues on W. Highland Avenue between Route 31 and Jackson Avenue. The underground work is complete, and restoration is expected to be complete within the next 2 weeks on W. Chicago St. and the valley between Jackson and Lynch, weather permitting.
The city’s Highland Avenue reconstruction project, which includes the complete removal and replacement of pavement, curb and gutter on Highland Avenue between Route 31 and the split at Larkin Avenue, is expected to be complete by late-October, weather permitting.
For more information on these projects, please contact Joe Evers, city engineer, at (847) 931-5955 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
