Green Street Lane Closure

September 13, 2017 - 7:00am to November 13, 2017 - 5:00pm

The south half of Green Street from Goodwin Avenue to Lincoln Avenue will be closed to eastbound traffic starting 7:00 a.m., Wednesday, September 13, 2017, until further notice. Eastbound Green Street traffic will use a marked detour route via Springfield Avenue. Westbound Green Street traffic will use the north half of the street. Northbound and southbound traffic will be maintained at all times at the Mathews Avenue, Goodwin Avenue, and Lincoln Avenue intersections with Green Street. If at all possible, through traffic is encouraged to use University Avenue or Florida Avenue instead of using Green Street during construction.

Green Street between Mathews Avenue and Goodwin Avenue remains closed until further notice.

Access to the Illini Union and the 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 Lincoln Avenue at this time.

The Multimodal Corridor Enhancement Project (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 construction of this project.
