**UPDATED 5/26/23 ** The Chaney and Center Water Main Replacement and Roadway Rehabilitation Project

Construction Start-3-8-2023_001

The City has contracted with Swallow Construction to upsize and replace the existing water main and to repave the roadway on Center from Theodore to Pasadena and Chaney from Center to Broadway for the 2023 construction season. The timeframe to complete this project is late summer/early fall of 2023 so please be patient and follow any guidance given so the Contractor can complete the work in a timely manner.  

Temporary detour routes will be installed to direct traffic flowing through the areas where construction is being performed, and local traffic will have access to the work zone before and after each workday. Residents who live in a section under construction will not be able to park on the street, but will have driveway access reestablished by the end of each work day. The Contractor will install “No Parking Signs” at locations where work is to occur. These signs will be installed a minimum of 2 days in advance.  

Should you have any special requests due to ADA or other reasons please contact the either the city or the city’s consultant, see below for contact information.  

We will do our best to keep this project moving forward in order to complete as soon as possible. We are also working on providing information to the public at key times during the project schedule to minimize any surprises. The final public notification plan is still being finalized and will be completed in the next few days.  So please be on the look out for handouts and also check the city’s website and Facebook for information on this project and the status of work. The web address where updates can be found is under Crest Hill popular topics-check out the latest news.
