Front Street Underground Utility Construction Work Begins

WHEATON, Ill. – Construction crews are working on the first phase of improvements in the City’s Downtown Streetscape Plan. The first work occurring in the downtown will involve underground utility upgrades along Front Street from Cross Street to West Street.

To keep our underground utilities project on time, construction crews will be working on Front Street a few Saturdays this month. All businesses are open and we thank you for your patience during this project. On-street parking will remain available on north-south streets, or visit the City’s website to see all parking options in the downtown.

This project will at times include limiting traffic to one lane and temporary detours.

Thank you for your patience as the City begins the process toward improving downtown Wheaton’s infrastructure, amenities and more.
