Weather permitting, on Wednesday, July 8, S. Dubuque Street will be reduced to one lane of traffic between Kirkwood Avenue and Benton Street, and, on Thursday, July 9, E. Benton Street will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic from Dubuque Street to Gilbert Street. These lane reductions are necessary to facilitate the construction of a building in the area. 

Motorists are to take note of this construction work and to allow extra travel time as delays may occur.  As always, caution should be exercised when traveling in all construction areas.
