As part of the City’s 2013 Concrete Street Maintenance Project, Harris Avenue within the Norfolk Southern Railroad right-of-way, between Beardsley Drive and Sherwood Terrace, will be rehabilitated. The City’s contractor for the project, GM Sipes Construction, will begin work on Monday, July 29, 2013, weather permitting.
During construction, Harris Avenue will be a southbound, one-lane, one-way street from Beardsley Avenue to Sherwood Terrace. The contractor will provide a flagger as needed to help direct traffic. Please be aware that there will also be temporary lane closures adjacent to the work while the new concrete is being placed. Harris Avenue will remain open to local and emergency traffic only.
Please pay close attention to construction signs and traffic control devices. Please do not park on the street near the construction site or in areas that are posted “No Parking.” Please proceed cautiously through construction zones and use alternate routes whenever possible. The contractor will attempt to complete construction activities as soon as possible to minimize any inconvenience to the residents in the areas of construction.
The City of Champaign would like to thank you for your cooperation and patience during this construction season. A map showing this location along with all 2013 City Engineering Division projects can be found at www.ci.champaign.il.us/pwd, click on “2013 Construction Maps” under “Timely Topics.”
