Lane Closures on Jefferson St. in Downtown Joliet

Post Date:07/07/2017 4:27 PM
Work on the Downtown Water Main and Sewer Main Improvement Projects on Jefferson Street between DesPlaines Street and Chicago Street will begin on Thursday, July 13, 2017. The work is anticipated to be completed by September 15, 2017.
The project will require significant traffic control to be installed for the duration of the project with only one traffic lane open. Nighttime detours of Jefferson (Route 30) are also scheduled. There will be no parking allowed on Jefferson between DesPlaines Street and Chicago Street. Drivers should be prepared for long delays and are reminded to slow down and use extreme caution when driving through the work zone. Obey posted speed limit and signing and watch for workers or flaggers. For the safety of workers and drivers do not use cell phones or text.
During construction, Pace busses will operate on detour routing and will not serve Jefferson Street between Hickory and Scott Streets, and Routes 501, 505, 507, 508, and 509 will lay over in new locations. For more information please visit
