More information regarding current approved street and sidewalk closures are available.

ST. MARY’S ROAD RECONSTRUCTION
St. Mary’s Road between Neil Street and Oak Street will be closed for comprehensive road and sidewalk improvements until mid-August. Please be aware that with this closure, Oak Street will be northbound traffic only at the intersection of St. Mary’s Road. Bicyclists and motorists are encouraged to use nearby alternate routes during this period on Kirby Avenue and First Street. In addition to pavement resurfacing and storm sewer upgrades, this project will include a new sidewalk and lighting along the north side of St. Mary’s Road, as well as a new pedestrian crossing on Neil Street. The project is a cooperative effort between the City of Champaign and the university.

MATHEWS AVENUE
Mathews Avenue between Green Street and Oregon Street will be adjusted for steam tunnel repairs until mid-August. The Noyes Laboratory circle drive on Mathews Avenue will become the temporary southbound route during this period. For detailed project and traffic control maps, including sidewalk and bike pathway reroutes, see the approved closure form. Once the work begins, large trucks should use alternate routes. Pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists are also encouraged to avoid the area because of possible delays from ongoing construction activities and deliveries to Noyes Laboratory and the Medical Sciences Building. To the greatest extent practical, deliveries will be coordinated during off-peak usage periods.  

SPRINGFIELD AVENUE
Springfield Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Wright Street and Mathews Avenue for steam tunnel repair work. The closure is expected to run until mid-August.
No through traffic will be permitted on this section of Springfield Avenue while construction is in progress, but detour routes will be clearly marked. The detour route for eastbound traffic will be Wright Street to Green Street to Mathews Avenue. For westbound traffic, the route will be Mathews Avenue to University Avenue to Wright Street.
