Is there a reason why closed U of I streets aren't included in this listing?

Thanks for your note. We run notices as we receive them from public works officials and state transportation offices. We run UI notices when we receive them.

Why is this even put up on the website, when some of the information is wrong?

Street closures on campus can be found at....


Approved closures show in a small box on the right-hand side of the page about half way down

Is there any reason that a list like this couldn't be sorted by locale (municipality) and street name?

Further, it seems as if a list like this could be periodically refreshed to remove stale information about past closings. Since it is now November, closings in July aren't particularly useful.

This is useful information as is, but it could be made far more useful.
