Reconstruction work will also be taking place on the west side of south Grove Avenue between Fulton Street and Prairie Street. This will include new sidewalk and curb and gutter, along with the installation of the new paver field at the northwest corner of Grove Avenue and Prairie Street.

Parking in these areas will be restricted in the areas where the electrician is working. These restrictions will move as the work proceeds.
