Main Street detour planned in downtown Glen Ellyn

A segment of Main Street in downtown Glen Ellyn will be closed to traffic for two days this week so crews can remove and replace sidewalks in front of a new pedestrian pathway linking businesses to the Civic Center parking garage.

Weather permitting, the northbound lane of Main will shut down between Hillside Avenue and Duane Street from 7 a.m. to roughly 2 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.

The closure is needed for sidewalk work in front of the pathway running from Main Street to the new Civic Center parking deck.

Flaggers will assist pedestrians on the east side of Main. After crews are done with their work each day, pedestrians will be provided a protected route to walk around the project area.

Southbound Main will remain open to drivers. Traffic heading north will use the following detour route: east on Hill Avenue, north on Park Boulevard and west on Duane to Main.
