Downtown Elgin Construction Update - Week of October 25

Metra Track Reconstruction Scheduled for Completion on October 28

No work will take place on Highland Avenue from October 20 through October 27 while METRA has Kimball Street closed. Assuming that Kimball Street is re-opened by Thursday, October 28, work will begin on adjusting drainage structures in preparation of the new surface course. Placement of surface is scheduled for the week of November 1, weather permitting, followed by placement of the permanent pavement striping later that week.

Brick paver installation and landscaping work will continue on Dexter Court as well as construction of the new planter and decorative wall.

If weather conditions remain favorable, construction of the brick paver crosswalks will begin after the surface has been placed and would be completed prior to Thanksgiving.

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.
