Chicago Avenue Construction Update
Sanitary sewer, watermain, and storm sewer replacement is in the final stages of construction with service laterals being installed the week of August 22, 2016.

Pavement removals began on the southbound lanes from Pine Street south to Oak Creek Parkway in late August.

During pavement installation, the road will be detoured and opened for local and business access only. Northbound traffic will be detoured onto Hawthorne, Memorial and Pine, and back to Chicago Avenue.  Southbound traffic will be detoured at Walnut, Oak Creek Parkway, and back to Chicago Avenue. Local or thru traffic as allowed will be on gravel at certain times. 

Paving and other work should be complete by mid-October.  Please use alternative routes as much as possible.
