Central High School: New Street to close for water project 11/19-11/26

During the week of Thanksgiving (November 19-26), New Street will be closed from University Avenue to north of Park Avenue due to an Illinois American Water project near Central High School. 

During this time, there will be:

  • No public access on Park Avenue between New and Lynn. Only Central staff will be able to access Park Avenue from Lynn Street to enter the staff parking lot. (see map)
  • No parking on New Street between Park and University at any time.
  • No parking on Lynn Street between University and Church during the school day.
  • No student drop-offs on Lynn Street to allow for bus traffic. Please use Elm, Church, Clark or University for drop-offs that week. 

Illinois American Water is managing this project, but we wanted to let neighbors, families and staff know since the activity will be near Central. The contractor working with Illinois American Water on this project will coordinate with individual residents if this will impact their private drives.
