As part of the 2012 Annual Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project, Cross Construction will be directional drilling and installing sewers to serve the south 500 block of Lynn Street. Directional drilling involves constructing a horizontal hole underground and pulling new sewer pipes into it. The purpose is to avoid long trenches and surface disruption where the new sewer is installed. To do this, the City of Champaign will periodically close one lane of traffic on Lynn Street between Healey Street and Green Street during working hours and no parking will be permitted. Traffic will be permitted to use Lynn Street under the direction of any flagging personnel at the construction zone.
Operations will begin at 7 a.m. on Monday, October 1, and are expected to continue until noon on Friday, October 12, 2012, weather permitting.
The public is encouraged to obey all construction signs and to plan alternative routes to avoid the work zone if possible.
