City Engineer, Sam Tesreau, has announced that 6th Street, from 1st Avenue south to Washington Street, will be closed to through traffic beginning Monday August 1st at 7 am. The closure is necessary to construct new concrete sidewalks and associated pavement removal and replacement. Bruns Construction, the City of Rochelle’s contractor, will be performing the work.
Residents along 6th Street are encouraged to use the alley access as there will be limited parking during the day. Motorists are advised to use an alternate route and avoid the area if possible.
Work is expected to be substantially complete by 4 pm on August 29th 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.
