Here’s a fun Bike Box Rap video one of the MTD summer interns worked on in regards to the Bike Boxes.
The MCORE Project recently saw the installation of a new feature to the Champaign-Urbana and Campus Community - Two-Stage Left-Turn Boxes. Watch this featured clip "On Two Wheels" produced by the City of Urbana.
The City of Champaign and its contractor, Duce Construction, continue to make progress on Project 2 as previously stated in an August 13 update, however there is one update:
The reopening of Green Street between Third Street and Fourth Street will be delayed by one day, in order to complete sidewalk work and the installation of street lights. This section of the street will reopen by the end of the day on Saturday, August 18. The contractor will work additional hours between now and the end of Saturday. Landscape work and some minor construction and clean-up will continue after that date.
The City of Champaign appreciates the cooperation and patience of property owners, residents, and visitors of the Campustown area during this important project. All businesses near the construction areas will remain open for business during construction.

The north half of Green Street from Goodwin Avenue to Lincoln Avenue will be closed to westbound traffic starting 7:00 a.m., Tuesday, March 6, 2018, until further notice. Westbound Green Street traffic will use a marked detour route via Springfield Avenue. Eastbound Green Street traffic will use the south half of the street. Northbound and southbound traffic will be maintained at all times at the Goodwin Avenue, and Lincoln Avenue, intersections with Green Street. If possible, through traffic is encouraged to use University Avenue or Florida Avenue instead of using Green Street during construction. Periodic lane closures on Lincoln Avenue north and south of Green Street and on Lincoln Avenue east of Lincoln Avenue to Busey Avenue may also occur during this time period. The sidewalks on the south side of Green Street from Goodwin Avenue to Lincoln Avenue will remain open to pedestrians. Pedestrian access for the CUMTD bus stop system will be available at bus stops provided on Springfield Avenue and Goodwin Avenue in the vicinity of the project. CUMTD buses will not be using Green Street from Goodwin Avenue to Lincoln Avenue at this time. We appreciate the patience and cooperation of the public during construction of this project.
