Update on Illinois Street Reconstruction Project

The Street Maintenance Division of the City of Kirksville’s Public Works Department continues with the reconstruction of Illinois Street, between Baltimore and Marion Streets. Beginning Monday, July 16, Illinois Street will be closed to through traffic between Baltimore and Davis Streets and reduced to one lane for residents only. During this time, motorists asked to consider an alternate route, if possible. The expected completion date of this project is September 7th, dependent upon the weather.

Street Superintendent, Ray Sandstrom, says once complete, this reconstruction project will result in a vastly improved street, complete with new curb, gutter, driving surface, and the addition of bicycle lanes. The City apologizes for any inconvenience, but looks forward to improving this neighborhood and corridor into Downtown.
