Street work set in Mahomet

Street work set in Mahomet

MAHOMET — A project to repair the streets in Mahomet's downtown business district is set to get underway early this summer.

The village trustees approved an $83,450 bid for the project. Cross Construction, which also handled last year's Division Street resurfacing, was the low bidder.

Public Works Director Gary LaForge said that work on Main Street from 150 feet west of Lincoln to in front of Sangamon School, as well as Lincoln from Franklin Street nearly to Dunbar, could start as early as mid-June.

He said the project has a "pretty aggressive schedule" but estimated that it'll still require a week to 10 days to complete. Village officials plan to meet with downtown business owners before the work gets underway.

LaForge characterized the project as maintenance rather than reconstruction, meant to address problems with the surface of the roadway but not affect curbs and gutters.
