Champaign officials announce temporary lane closures
CHAMPAIGN - Champaign Public Works officials say routine storm sewer maintenance will cause various lane closures on Prospect Avenue from February 2 until February 20, weather permitting.
The closures will take place on Prospect Avenue between Washington Street and Bloomington Road, with work taking place Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Southbound traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone, and the lane closure will be no more than two block long at any given time.
Officials say the maintenance will only be performed during the daytime on weekdays, and that evening travel after 4:00 p.m. will not be affected. Motorists are encouraged to plan alternative routes to avoid the area, and to obey all construction signs and use caution while in work zones.
