Streets to close for construction
A number of Champaign streets will have closures due to construction next week:
— Third Street between Green and John streets will be closed starting Monday so that a contractor can remove a pedestrian walkway over Third Street at 705 S. Third St.
That portion of the street should reopen by the end of the work day Wednesday. Through traffic will not be permitted but local traffic will have access to their properties.
Properties south of the closure should use the John Street entrance. Properties north of the closure should use the Green Street entrance.
— To repair a sanitary sewer in the 900 block of South Third Street, Third between Daniel and Chalmers streets will be closed from Monday through Friday.
Through traffic will not be permitted, but local traffic will have access to their properties. Properties south of the closure should use the Chalmers Street entrance.
— One eastbound lane of Bradley Avenue between Clock and Champaign streets will be closed to traffic beginning Tuesday so that the pavement may be patched at the intersection of Market Street and Bradley Avenue.
The work should be done and lane reopened by Monday, March 26.
— Parts of Bradley Avenue in west Champaign will be closed beginning Monday so that the pavement can be patched in areas where fiber optic cable for the UC2B project has been installed.
One eastbound lane of Bradley Avenue just east of Clayton, one westbound lane of Bradley just east of Clayton, and a turn lane into Parkland College, just east of Clayton will be closed from Monday through Friday.
That means eastbound and westbound traffic will be reduced to just one lane in that area.
