Downtown Elgin Construction Update - Week of 10/11

Dexter Court Nearly Complete; E. Highland Surface Removal to Begin

Reconstruction of Dexter Court winds down the week of October 11 with the milling of the existing asphalt surface (Monday) and placement of the first course of the new asphalt surface (Tuesday or Wednesday). Dexter Court will be closed for a period of time while the asphalt is being placed and allowed to cool.

Surface removal on Highland Avenue between Riverside Drive and Center Street, on Spring Street between Highland Avenue and Division Street, and on Center Street between Kimball Street and Dundee Avenue takes place this week, as well as placement of the first course of the new asphalt surface.

Installation of brick pavers continues on the south side of Highland Avenue between Spring Street and Center Street.

The City's payment drop box has been temporarily relocated during construction. To access the drop box, enter the Civic Center Parking lot from Douglas Avenue. Vehicular access to the drop box will be available in a drive up lane set up in the parking area along the north side of this entrance. The drop box will remain in its temporary location until the new center planter/wall is built in Dexter Court.

This phase of the CBD Streetscape project includes Highland Avenue from Riverside Drive to Center Street, Grove Court, Spring Street from Highland Avenue to Division Street, Dexter Court and Center Street from Kimball Street to Dundee Avenue.
