FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — The city of Freeport has just announced that it has contracted with RMS Utility Services, Inc. to provide repairs to manhole structures of our sanitary sewer system. The city says part of the task of getting this work done entails having some normal flows being diverted while the work is taking place.
To meet this objective, eastbound Stephenson Street will be reduced to one lane beginning at Carthage for approximately 400’ to the east. The start of this lane reduction will begin at approximately 6:00 am on March 11th, and will continue until the task is complete.
The expected completion of this task is Friday, March 14th but may be sooner based on work flow.
Note: We incorrectly stated pothole repair. The city is doing manhole repair. We apologize for the error. Wishful thinking perhaps.
