Taft Avenue in Urbana will be under construction for several days beginning today. City Engineer Tyler Bumbalough said during the Taft Avenue Improvements Project, crews from The Shelly Company, Springfield, will mill and repave the roadway, which in ideal weather takes approximately four days.
“Residents will not be allowed to park on the street during this time, but they will have access to their driveways,” he said. “To avoid delays, (residents) are encouraged to use alleys and side streets if available.”
The $85,387.50 project is being funded through a Champaign County Community Development Block Grant in the amount of $63,000 and a local match of $22,387.50.
