University Avenue Construction Meeting Set
The Illinois Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting about construction along University Avenue (U.S. 150) between Wright Street and Cunningham Avenue in Urbana on Monday, March 2, 2020.
The meeting will be held at the project field office from 5-7 p.m. March 2, 2020. The field office is located at 510 N. Cunningham Ave, Unit 5 Urbana.
Construction is expected to begin March 16 and involves rebuilding sidewalks, curbs and gutters as well is improvements to lighting and traffic signals in the work zone during the 2020 construction season. Nighttime rehabilitation of the road surface is slated for next year. The project is scheduled to be complete by Nov. 1, 2021.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
