Downtown Streetscape work rolls on in Dixon

Portions of Peoria Avenue and Ottawa Street to close next week

DIXON – Two additional sections of downtown streets will be closed next week as work on the downtown streetscape project progresses.

The project began in mid May and is expected to last until November.

On the west side of the project:

Work will continue on Peoria Avenue, between Second and Third streets, where the road will remain closed.

Last week, work began on Peoria Avenue, between First and Second streets. The east side of the street will be closed next week, in addition to occasional closures of the west side.

The intersection of Peoria Avenue and Second Street may be partially or fully closed, as necessary, for pavement removal and water main installation.

On the east side of the project:

Work will continue this weekend on First Street, between Hennepin and Galena avenues, on excavation and stone placement for the roadway, which is expected to be finished by Monday. Curb and sidewalk installation on this block is expected to begin next week.

Ottawa Street, between First and Second streets, will be closed next week for pavement and sidewalk removal, followed by installation of the water main and storm sewer.
