Lane Closure on Various Streets for Pavement Marking

Date: 
August 9, 2017 - 8:00am to August 18, 2017 - 5:00pm

The City of Urbana has contracted with Varsity Striping & Construction Company to perform the annual pavement marking project. The project consists of repainting the center line, edge line, bike lanes and no passing zones on various streets in the City of Urbana.

The striping equipment travels at very slow speeds when applying paint. Motorists should be patient and pass only when it is safe to do so.

Please see the attached map for the roads that will be impacted.

Periodic lane closures can be expected on the listed streets starting Wednesday, August 9, 2017 and ending Friday, August 18, 2017.

Further information about the 2017 Pavement Marking Project can be found here.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
