Press Release: Downtown Macomb Revitalization Project Update

MACOMB, IL- McCarthy Improvement will be finishing to pour sidewalks from 31 East Side Square to 19 East Side Square on Friday, September 24, 2021, weather permitting. Starting Monday, September 27, 2021 MCI will began removing sidewalks from 17 E. Side Square to 1 East Side Square to the Alleyway (Sullivan Taylor). Contractors will then begin pouring curb and gutter in this section by the end of next week.
In order to minimize business interruptions, MCI will be working in smaller sections, approximately 1 block, during the remaining stages. Each block is estimated to take two weeks, weather permitting. Please remember, during this process, please be cautious while driving or walking near the work zone.
Entrances to the businesses will be accessible through the construction process. As the contractor is pouring sidewalks in front of businesses, pedestrian walkways will continue to shift through this process. Pedestrians are encouraged to pay attention to the changing walk patterns.
McCarthy Improvement will be asking for an extension through the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to extend the competition date into the 2022 construction season. More information can be found on the City Macomb Website and Downtown Macomb/Facebook.
