Lane reductions on Washington St. begin Monday


Lane reductions will be In effect through July 29

Starting in the early morning hours of Mon., July 9, motorists traveling on Washington St. will experience lane reductions between 5th Ave. and Franklin Ave. due to watermain and electric duct bank work occurring in that area, weather permitting. Work in this area will continue through July 29.

During this time, traffic on Washington St. will be reduced to one lane in each direction beginning at 5th Ave. and continuing south to Franklin Ave. Both northbound and southbound traffic will be shifted to the east side of Washington; the west side of Washington from North Ave. to Spring Ave. will be closed entirely due to the construction work.

Work on this project, which will provide increased reliability of the City’s water system, will take place primarily during daytime hours.

Residents and interested parties should also note there will be no access to the DuPage Children’s Museum parking lot from Washington St. during this time while sidewalk and driveway improvements are being made to this access point. The Spring Ave. entrance may be utilized as an alternate route by turning onto Douglas Ave., right on Webster St. and then right on Spring Ave. to access the lot. Commuters that utilize this lot should access the Metra platform via the stairs at the northeast corner of the lot.

Pedestrian approaches at the intersections of North Ave. and Washington St. as well as Spring Ave. and Washington St. will be reconstructed during this time to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. A pedestrian detour route will be established and signage will be utilized to direct pedestrians appropriately.

The City strongly encourages motorists to utilize alternate routes and allow extra time to get to their destination while construction work is ongoing. Suggested alternate north/south routes include Mill St. and Loomis St.

As with any construction project, the City would like to remind motorists to stay alert, use caution and abide by all traffic regulations when driving through construction zones. For safe driving tips in construction zones, visit www.naperville.il.us/constructionsafety.aspx.
