Derby Street Rehabilitation

The Derby Street Rehabilitation Project has been split into two sections. Both sections involve a complete removal and replacement of the road, with all new curbs, sidewalks, pavement. All sanitary sewers are being lined in advance of the projects. A camera was used to evaluate all storm sewer pipes in advance, and all pipes that are in poor condition will be replaced as part of this project. Some water main work will also be completed as part of this project (paid for by Illinois American Water).

  • Section One: 8th Street to 14th Street, including a portion of 14th Street
    • Will include a new intersection configuration at 14th Street so that southbound traffic can go straight through the intersection.
    • The bid date for this project is scheduled for April 24th, and construction should begin in May of 2023.
    • During the construction, Derby Street will be one-way heading eastbound to allow the contractor to close and re-construct half of the pavement at a time. All businesses will have at least one point of access throughout the project.
