Starting Monday, Sept. 9, the City of Naperville will begin resurfacing work on Washington Street, pending weather and unforeseen circumstances. Work is expected to be complete in mid-October.

Construction along Washington Street—between Osler Drive (near Edward Hospital) and School Street (north end of campus)—may cause delays to motorists traveling to and from campus during this time. Students, faculty and staff who typically use Washington Street are encouraged to find alternate routes.
