The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will be making roadway improvements along IL Route 7 (9th Street) from just west of Canal Street to just east of Read Street. Due to recent improvements, IDOT will omit the roadway section between Canal Street and Hamilton Street, as well as the section between Lincoln Street and 700 feet west of Read Street for an upcoming Roadway Channelization Project. Pavement resurfacing, curb rehabilitation, drainage and ADA pedestrian ramp improvements, traffic signal modernization, pavement markings, and landscape restoration are all part of the scope of this IDOT project. Curb repair, storm structure, and sewer repairs will begin on Monday, April 17. The project is expected to be finished by the end of July.
