URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) — University of Illinois Facilities and Services announced that westbound traffic in one lane on a portion of Pennsylvania Avenue will be closed for two weeks beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday.
The closure, between Dorner Drive and Lincoln Avenue on the U of I campus, is due to pavement patching work. Officials said traffic along the intersecting streets of Dorner Dr. and Lincoln Ave. will be impacted by this closure.
The road is scheduled to reopen at 3:30 p.m. on April 7, weather permitting.
U of I Facilities and Services shared the map of the project below:
Similar pavement patching work is being done along a portion of Dorner Dr. between Gregory Dr. and Peabody Dr., also beginning Monday. That road is scheduled to reopen on April 7 too, weather permitting.
Additionally, the City of Champaign announced that one westbound lane of University Avenue will be closed beginning at 8 a.m. on Monday.
The closure, between Chestnut Street and Second Street, is so routine sewer maintenance work can be done. The city said that the work is weather dependent and may be delayed in the event of inclement weather in the area.
Officials advise all drivers in the area to pay close attention when driving in the area and proceed cautiously through the work zone. The city thanks everyone for their cooperation and patience during the project.
The lane is scheduled to reopen at 4 p.m. Monday.
