Traffic flow changes to one-way westbound on portion of Van Buren Avenue

Print Email Share

A section of Van Buren Avenue near the Van Buren Parking Deck became one-way westbound beginning Monday, Oct. 7, to accommodate work for the Main Street Promenade East development.

Two-way traffic will be maintained on Van Buren Avenue from Washington Street to the entrance of the Van Buren Parking Deck. The entrance of the Van Buren Parking Deck to Main Street will allow westbound traffic only to accommodate a pedestrian walkway that is being added in that area near the parking deck.

Due to the one-way designation, vehicles will only be allowed to head west upon exiting the Van Buren Parking Deck. Motorists traveling in that portion of downtown Naperville are advised to be cautious of construction in the area and allow extra time to reach their destination.

This section of Van Buren Avenue will remain one-way until construction is completed on the Main Street Promenade East development, a retail and office project at the northeast corner of Main Street and Van Buren Avenue. As part of the project, Main Street between Benton and Van Buren avenues was closed Sept. 30 and a vehicle detour has been posted directing traffic around the closure. Both the roadway and sidewalks will be closed between Benton and Van Buren avenues through summer 2014. Pedestrian access will be maintained to the businesses on the west side of Main Street from Van Buren Avenue.  

In addition, the south side of the sidewalk along Benton Avenue between Main Street and the Van Buren Parking Deck entrance is closed; pedestrians should use the north sidewalk along Benton Avenue.
