Circle Avenue will be closed at Fillmore Street, May 24 and May 25, as work continues in Forest Park on the installation of a water main to be used by the Brookfield-North Riverside Water Commission.
Traffic on Circle will be blocked at Harvard on the north and at Roosevelt on the south. Detour signs have been posted.
The project, which began last month, involves the installation of a 12,100-foot-long, 36-inch ductile iron water main from Harlem to Hannah avenues, where it will connect to an existing 20-inch pipe owned by the water commission. The overall project started last year with similar work in Oak Park.
Project officials said alleys are open but garage access along Fillmore is limited.
The overall project is scheduled to be completed by July 15.
Forest Park officials noted that the project is solely funded by the Brookfield-North Riverside commission and no village funds are being expended.
