Main Street / County Road 20 to be closed beginning Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Businesses Open Flyer Front             Business Resident Letter

  • Main Street / County Road 20 will be closed in Downtown Rockford for approximately three weeks beginning Wednesday, May 4th, 2016, between Highway 55 and Elm Street.
  • Water Main replacement and repair will occur during this time frame and will protect against future repairs and service disruptions.
  • Please contact project representative, Steve Hegland, with any questions you may have: shegland@wenck.com; (612) 741-6548.

 

This road closure is necessary to repair and replace the water main under our Downtown Improvement Area, as it was discovered during construction that the water mains, valves and other connections showed moderate to severe deterioration. Failure to repair and replace the mains, valves and other connections now would result in future costly repairs and replacements within the next few years.

During the road closure, Elm Street will be accessible and can be taken to Mechanic Street to access Bridge Street and Highway 55. Additionally, Ash Street can be used to access Highway 55 as well. We will continue to post updates on the City’s website tracking our construction process which will also provide updated information on our construction schedule as we move forward.

While this was an unanticipated complication to the Main Street Improvement Project, we are still on track with our estimated project completion date being on or before August 1st, 2016.

Please contact project representative, Steve Hegland, with any questions you may have: shegland@wenck.com; (612) 741-6548. You can also visit the City’s website for weekly updates which are typically posted Friday on afternoons: www.cityofrockford.org.
