In order to erect a tower crane at 217 S. Neil Street (Hyatt Place hotel), English Brothers closed Church Street between Neil Street and Randolph Street this morning at 7 a.m. Due to inclement weather, set-up of the tower crane has been postponed and both lanes of Church Street will be reopened this afternoon.
Both lanes will be closed again on Wednesday, February 27, 2013, and Thursday, February 28, 2013. Through traffic will not be allowed in the area; however, customers to First Bank and those who require local access will have an entrance available at Randolph and Church. A similar road closure is expected in October/November in order to disassemble and remove the tower crane.
The public is encouraged to obey all construction signs or plan alternative routes to avoid this work.
