First Avenue Construction

First Avenue Construction

Posted September 18, 2014

The First Avenue construction project is ramping up very quickly and will begin on Monday the 22nd.  The first stages of construction will impact the north crosswalk beginning on Monday. IDOT recommended that this crosswalk be closed until further notice.
 
Starting tomorrow around 9 AM the Department of Public Works will begin closing off the sidewalks and the north crosswalk. Please advise students of this change as they will need to reroute themselves back to the temporary mid-block crosswalk on Ridgewood. North-south crosswalks after 9:00 AM tomorrow will be Groveland and mid-block on Ridgewood. The area will be barricaded and fenced off as it was in August and earlier this month. As with the past project to help direct students we will supply additional help to assist for the first few days.
