Section of Normal to Close Thursday

Closure to last four weeks

As part of the ongoing improvement project on Normal Boulevard, the street will be closed to traffic between S. 48th and S. 56th streets from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29th. During the closure, local access to residential and business properties will be maintained. Drivers are encouraged to use either South Street or Van Dorn Street, and signal timing adjustments have been made to better handle the detour traffic. Motorists should expect delays and are asked to drive with additional caution.

The project will continue to restrict traffic to single eastbound and westbound lanes from S. 48th to S. 56th streets for about four weeks. Once this segment is complete, construction will move to segments west of S. 48th Street. The entire project on Normal from South to S. 56th streets is expected to be complete by the end of November. The project includes repairing or replacing deteriorated concrete panels, joints and curbs; sealing cracks; replacing damaged storm drainage inlet tops; replacing pedestrian curb ramps; utility adjustments; and restoration of traffic signal elements impacted by the work.

The Public Works and Utilities Department appreciates the public's patience during this project. For more information, visit (keyword: normal) or contact Erin Sokolik at or 402-416-9460.
