Ottawa street closures to include busy downtown spot

Downtown Ottawa drivers will find traffic restrictions at LaSalle and Main streets Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. City Hall says an emergency sewer repair job will require two lanes of southbound Illinois 23/LaSalle St. to be closed. Only the far right lane will be open. The 100 block of W. Main St. eastbound from LaSalle to Court St. will be closed, so there won’t be any left turns off LaSalle. Court St. will stay open. So will westbound Main St. in that block from northbound Illinois 23/Columbus St. to LaSalle. The work will start at 6am Thursday.

The 300 block of Congress St. between Shabbona and Division streets will be closed Thursday. City Hall says tree contractors and Ameren will be there for tree removal work. The job is expected to take most of the day, starting at 8am.
