Construction of new streetlighting is planned for Illinois Street, Gregory Street, and Oregon Street and is scheduled to start the week of June 5th. The project is expected to end in late October 2017. The new streetlights will resemble the streetlights currently on Goodwin Avenue adjacent to the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts except the lamp will be a LED lamp instead of a metal halide lamp as is installed on Goodwin Avenue. This project is 100% funded from the City of Urbana’s Motor Vehicle Parking System Fund.
