A pre-construction open house for the Airport Road West Reconstruction Project will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Urbana Civic Center, 108 East Water Street, Urbana, Illinois 61801. The open house will be conducted on an informal basis; no formal presentation is planned. Exhibits, plans and aerial photography of the proposed improvements will be available during this time. Project representatives will be available to discuss the construction plans for the project and to answer any questions.
The project consists of the reconstruction of Airport Road from a narrow two-lane chip and seal road to a new three-lane concrete street. The improvements also consist of the installation of a new drainage system with curbs/gutters, storm sewers and drainage basins, as well as modifications to the traffic signals at the Airport Road and Cunningham Avenue intersection. Farnsworth Group, Inc. of Champaign, Illinois, is the engineering consultant for the project.
