CHAMPAIGN — Traffic will be reduced on a portion of Market Street on Champaign's north side beginning Monday as part of the Market Street improvement project.
Cross Construction will be working on the east side of Market Street between Kenyon Road and Wallace Avenue starting Monday, April 15.
Access will be maintained at all times to all residences and businesses in the work zone.
The overall project involves rehabilitating 1.65 miles of pavement by milling off the existing asphalt surface, patching failed joints in the underlying pavement, completing minor curb and storm sewer repairs, and laying a new asphalt surface. The project will also increase the width of the shoulder between Wallace Avenue and Olympian Drive.
In addition, some new sections of sidewalk will be installed between Kenyon Drive and Mercury Drive, a new traffic signal at the Market-Olympian intersection and a new LED street light system will be installed between Kenyon Drive and Mercury Drive.
The entire project is scheduled to be completed by Oct. 4.
