In case you want to know more about the next stage of the downtown Streetscape project, be at City Hall on April 4 from 4 to 6 p.m.:
The City of Carbondale will host an open house on Wednesday, April 4 to present the plans to the public for the second phase of the Illinois Avenue Streetscape Improvements Project.
This project is a continuation of the improvements of the sidewalks, streetlights and related improvements completed last summer along Illinois Avenue. The second phase will begin where the first phase ended, at Cherry Street, and will continue to Monroe Street on the north side of City Hall.
Plans will be on display from 4 to 6 p.m. in Room 103 of the Carbondale Civic Center. Community members are invited to view the plans and provide comments about the work. In addition, City officials will be on hand to answer questions.
Similar to last summer, work on the project is expected to begin immediately after Southern Illinois University Commencement in May and conclude in August.
