The city, with the help of a consultant, is currently working on short term and long term plans to reconstruct Windsor Road from Philo Road to Race Street.
Following directives expressed in the City Council's goals to "evaluat[e] all city projects for sustainability and incorporat[e] energy-savings systems," the City hired Ourston Roundabout Engineering to study the feasibility of installing a modern roundabout at two intersections scheduled for improvements in the near future.
Paris, Illinois--The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announces that, weather permitting, work is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, August 10, 2011 for pavement patching on Illinois Route 130 in Champaign County from Philo, Illinois to Windsor Road in Urbana, Illinois.
This project will include patching of the existing pavement on Illinois Route 130. Traffic will be reduced to one lane and controlled by flaggers. While work is ongoing, please observe all traffic control signs. The anticipated completion date is the end of August 2011, weather permitting. The contractor for this $170,000 project is Open Road Paving.
Motorists are advised to slow down and drive carefully through this and all work zones.
For more information, contact Josh Kauffman (217.558.0517) or Guy Tridgell (312.814.4693) at IDOT.
New traffic signals at the intersection of Windsor Road and Myra Ridge Drive will be put into full operation on Thursday, November 11th, weather permitting.
Prior to the signals being placed into full operation they will be set to red flash for all directions of the intersection on Wednesday, November 10th in order to give motorists one day to adjust to the operating signal. Motorists are urged to use caution when approaching the intersection.
The new traffic signal is a part of the nearly complete Windsor Road Project in southeast Urbana. The project consisted of the widening of the road from two to four and five lanes which changed the character of the road from rural to urban.
All lanes of the road are open to traffic now that the road has been striped. The remaining work to be completed before wrapping up for winter is rough grading of the disturbed areas and the completion of the roadway lighting. Final grading of the disturbed areas will be performed next spring under more appropriate weather conditions.
