North Main Street Reconstruction

This project, being led by IDOT, will result in the complete reconstruction of the Auburn Street to Riverside Boulevard corridor of North Main Street (IL Route 2) into a modern State highway.  The project scope includes new concrete pavement, intersection improvements, new storm sewer, decorative street lighting and traffic signals, pedestrian accommodations (sidewalk and multi-use path), new water main, landscaping components, and relocated overhead utilities.  Construction on the project began in Fall 2015, and the improvements completed to date include water main installation, utility relocation and full reconstruction of the roadway between Auburn Street and the Canadian Pacific Railroad.  Continuing into 2018, similar roadway work will commence north of the Railroad through Riverside Boulevard.  The expected completion date of the project is Summer 2019.
