2nd and 3rd Street Closure November 2nd through the 6th, 2015

2nd and 3rd Street Closure November 2nd through the 6th, 2015

City Engineer, Sam Tesreau, has announced that 2nd Street, from 8th Ave north to the Countryside Village entrance, will be closed to through traffic beginning Tuesday November 2nd at 7am. In addition, 3rd Street, from 8th Ave north for approximately 300 feet, will be closed to through traffic beginning Tuesday November 2nd at 7am. The closure is necessary to remove pavement, disconnect underground sewer services, and backfill the excavations along with associated pavement restoration. Anderson Plumbing contractors will be completing the work for the Rochelle Community Hospital expansion.

There will be no access to May School, School Avenue, or the Rochelle Community Hospital facilities through this section of 2nd Street or 3rd Street for the duration of the project. May School, the Rochelle Middle School, and the Rochelle Community Hospital will be accessible from 2nd Street and 3rd Street via 10th Ave and School Avenue. Residents along the affected section will have limited access to driveways. Motorists are advised to use an alternate route and avoid the area if possible.

All other through traffic will be detoured as follows:
Northbound through traffic will be detoured from 2nd and 3rd Streets, west along 8th Avenue to Main Street, north along Main Street to 10th Avenue, east on 10th Avenue to 2nd and 3rd Streets.
Southbound through traffic will be detoured from 2nd and 3rd Streets, west along 10th Avenue to Main Street, south along Main Street to 8th Avenue, east along 8th Avenue to 2nd and 3rd Streets. Work is expected to be complete by November 6th and is subject to weather.

Advance warning, detour and other temporary traffic control devices will be posted near the affected area. Please use caution while traveling in this area and pay special attention to the advanced warning signage, road closed signage and other
temporary traffic control devices within or in advance of the work zone. We appreciate your patience during this project.
