Green Street Road Closure & Mathews Avenue Direction Reversal

Date: November 3, 2017 - 5:00pm

Green Street will be open to two-way traffic from Wright Street to Mathews Avenue by 8:00 pm Friday, September 1, 2017. Also, the traffic direction on Mathews Avenue from Springfield Avenue to Green Street will be reversed from one way travelling southbound to one-way travelling northbound by 10:00 am Wednesday, September 6. Green Street will remain closed from Mathews Avenue to Goodwin Avenue until further notice.

During the closure of Green Street eastbound/westbound traffic on Green Street will use a marked detour route via Wright Street-Springfield Avenue-Goodwin Avenue. Northbound and southbound traffic at the Mathews Avenue and Green Street intersection will be maintained at all times. Access to the Illini Union and Natural History Building on Green Street will be available at all times via Wright Street. Pedestrian access for the CUMTD bus stop system will be available at bus stops provided on Springfield Avenue and Goodwin Avenue in the vicinity of the project. CUMTD buses will not be using Green Street from Wright Street to Mathews Avenue at this time.

The MCORE Project will improve access for all modes of transportation on the University of Illinois campus and provide direct connections to downtown Urbana and Champaign. The project is funded in part by a Federal Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

We appreciate the patience and cooperation of the public during this project.
