Kirby Avenue detour changed to Curtis Road for heavy vehicles
CHAMPAIGN — The detour for the upcoming closure of Kirby Avenue over Interstate 57 has been changed.
Kirby will be closed beginning Monday through much of the summer while the I-57 overpass is repaired.
The original east-west detour, using Windsor Road, will remain available for cars, but vehicles weighing 20 tons or more will not be able to use Windsor, because of weight limits on the bridge carrying Windsor over I-57; they'll have to use Curtis Road instead, according to a city release.
Some lane closures will happen on I-57 during the work as well, which is expected to last into early August.
