Message from Alderman Tom McNamara:
On September 16th at 7:00 am the intersection of N. Main Street and Auburn Street will be completely closed to traffic until 7:00 am on September 25th. The limits of the closure on Auburn Street will be from Church Street to Myott Ave., and on N. Main Street will be from Boilvin Ave/Reynolds St. to Wagner Ave. Traffic will not be able to enter this area during the closure. A detour will be posted.
During the closure, work will occur during the night time and early morning hours. Construction activities during the closure will include pavement removal, paving, curb and gutter installation, utility adjustments, and so forth. These activities are being completed under the full closure due to their proximity to the current traffic lanes as well as staging limits.
Businesses are open during construction and the public parking lots are accessible. The public parking lots are located off of Toner Avenue and Latham Pl. Drivers are encouraged to utilize Boilvin Ave and Myott Ave to access the public parking lot at the southeast corner of the N. Main Street and Auburn Street intersection, and Reynolds Street and Church Street for the parking lot at the southwest corner of the N. Main Street and Auburn Street intersection.
Drivers are encouraged to consider alternate routes during the project construction. Drivers are also reminded to obey work zone speed limits and to stay alert for workers when driving through the construction zone. The City of Rockford appreciates your patience and cooperation during this project.
Questions regarding this project should be directed to Jamie Rott in the Public Works Department at (815) 967-6742. Thank you for your consideration.
