Traffic Signal Installation at Aurora Avenue and Webster Street Begins Week of May 16
Signal to Improve Access to Water Street District and New Parking Deck
(The new traffic signal went live on August 11, 2016. )
Pending weather or unforeseen circumstances, work is slated to begin the week of May 16 to install a new traffic signal at the intersection of Aurora Avenue and Webster Street. The new traffic signal will improve access to the Water Street District and new parking deck, both of which are currently under construction, as well as better pedestrian access to Naper Settlement.
Work will last until approximately mid-August. Daily lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aurora Avenue will be necessary to install the signal; two-way traffic will be maintained throughout construction. Flaggers will control traffic during some of the operations.
Motorists should use caution when driving through the work zone and expect delays. For their safety, pedestrians should cross Aurora Avenue using the signalized crossings at Main Street or Eagle Street.
