Beginning the week of March 6, 2017, Lincoln Avenue will be closed to traffic from Oaks Road to Olympian Drive.
During this construction phase, northbound traffic will be detoured from Oaks Road to Willow Road to Ford Harris Road; southbound traffic will be detoured in reverse order. Special accommodations are in place to allow access to residences in the closed area.
During the closure, earthwork, ditch work and the installation of culvert pipe will occur. The road closure is anticipated to remain in effect until Fall 2017.
Stark Construction is the contractor on this $2.59 million project, which is being constructed as a joint project with Champaign County. Eighty percent of this project is funded with Federal Surface Transportation Urban Program monies.
Olympian Drive will be opened between Lincoln Avenue and Apollo Drive once the North Lincoln Avenue improvements are completed.
Please drive safely in and around construction areas. The City of Urbana would like to thank the public for its patience and cooperation during this project.
