BURLINGTON — Starting July 10, We Energies will begin gas main and service line maintenance work in downtown Burlington.

Residents and those traveling throughout Burlington should be aware that the work at times limits access to street parking on Chestnut and Pine Streets and Milwaukee Avenue. In addition, according to the City of Burlington, some limited sidewalk closures will be necessary during the project and are expected.

Officials note that no road closures are anticipated, however, lane shifts on Milwaukee Avenue will be necessary at times during the first phase of the project. During the first phase, the public alley next to the Loop Commons is expected to be closed at times.

Per the City of Burlington, they remind people that construction schedules are estimated and subject to change based on numerous factors that can be encountered during the work. An estimated project schedule, map, and impacts are listed below. Refer to the map and the schedule for additional information on what each phase entails.
