Nicor gas main work on Chicago Street in Joliet to start soon

JOLIET – Gas main work is scheduled to begin April 25 on Chicago Street in Joliet, starting at Jefferson Street and moving north to Liberty Street.

Rotating lane closures, block by block, will be in place throughout construction. At least one lane of traffic, northbound only, will be maintained during the various phases of construction, according to a news release from the city.

All local businesses will remain accessible, officials said, and impacts to street parking will be minimized as much as possible.

The project will be completed in two phases. The first phase, from Jefferson Street to Cass Street, is expected to be completed by June 8. The second phase, from Cass Street to Liberty Street, is anticipated to be completed by Aug. 15. All through traffic is encouraged to find alternate routes. No detour will be posted, according to the news release.
