The roadway will be reopened as soon as the work can be completed. The work is another step in the water main replacement project on North Buchanan Street from East Union Street to East Vandalia Street.

The city is in the process of replacing an approximately century-old 4-inch cast iron water main with a 12-inch water main along the entire stretch of road. With this closure, workers will begin to transfer the businesses along the block to the new water main. The City appreciates the cooperation and patience of all residents during this process. Please contact Public Works at (618) 692-7535 with any questions.
