🚫Main St Parking Prohibited🚫

Starting tomorrow, November 2nd, and until further notice, street parking is prohibited on Main Street, between First and Division, to allow for IDOT construction crews to repave Route 1. The project will replace the roadway and curbs from North Main Street, down to Burville Road, and should be completed later this month.

Construction Update

Crete Public Works is fixing a water main break on Moray Court, which should be completed today. On Main Street, a sinkhole to a sanitary sewer is being repaired and should be done tomorrow.

Haweswood Drive Construction

Construction crews have been hard at work, replacing the creek culvert on Haweswood Drive. Constructed some 60 years ago, the original metal culverts were severely rusted and partly caved in and could eventually result in the roadway collapsing if not replaced.

Complicating and delaying the project further, was the discovery of unmapped utility cables, and both AT&T and ComED had to be called to perform an inspection. The cables were found to no longer be in use, and the crew was able to safely cut them before continuing.

Construction is now completed and the road is open again.

The new culverts should last for about a century.
