Roadway and Infrastructure Improvements Program Update - March 4, 2022

This letter is to update the tentative schedule listed in our letter of February 8, 2022, regarding upcoming work along Walnut Street. The sequence of work has been revised due to delayed permitting review of work in METRA property. 

To keep the water main work on schedule a one-day partial closure of the intersection of Orchard Street and Walnut Street will be required. On Monday, March 14, 2022 from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. the Orchard Street & Walnut Street intersection will be closed to through traffic.  Northbound traffic on Walnut Street will be detoured to Elm Street at Orchard Street and southbound traffic on Walnut Street will be detoured at Center Street to Catalpa Avenue. Local southbound traffic to businesses on Walnut Street, south of Center Street will be maintained.
