Freeport, Illinois — Freeport’s Community Development director issued an update to the lane closures regarding the demolition of 17 West Stephenson Street.

As demolition of 17 W. Stephenson proceeds the following closures of parking lanes and driving lanes are scheduled. Please note these dates have been revised to reflect current operations:

W. Stephenson St. (Chicago to Van Buren):

  • Both driving lanes closed January 27th from 6AM to 12PM

Modifications to this schedule will be made as necessary to facilitate demolition, and alley access will continue to be restricted during this time period as well.

Additionally, if traveling downtown before or after the demolition, please note the neighboring businesses Abet Books & Games as well as Joe’s Pizza and their entrances.
