Temporary Intersection Closure--Wright Street and Green Street

Date: April 1, 2020 - 7:30am

Starting April 1, 2020, the intersection of Wright Street and Green Street will be closed to east-west through traffic to allow for the reconstruction of the pavement within the intersection.  The alternate route for Green Street traffic traveling across Wright Street is to use Goodwin Avenue in Urbana and Fourth Street in Champaign to access either Springfield Avenue or University Avenue.

Some key pieces of information related to vehicle and pedestrian access at the intersection during this phase of the work are:

  • Wright Street will be one-way southbound between Green Street and John Street.
  • Eastbound traffic on Green Street will be required to turn either northbound or southbound onto Wright Street.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained across Wright Street on either the north or south side of the intersection.  In the interest of pedestrian safety, access will vary depending on the construction activities taking place.

During this phase of construction, it is highly recommended that vehicles seek alternate routes when traveling through this area of campus.  Access to businesses will be maintained during the construction.  The work will take several weeks to complete.

This is a City of Champaign project.  For additional information, visit or contact Mr. Kris Koester at 217/403-4700 or
