Wesley construction

Downtown Streetscape Phase 2 Work Underway

This week, crews began working on the next phase of improvements in downtown Wheaton. They are currently removing benches, light poles, trees and more along Wesley Street in preparation for new wider sidewalks, street lights, trees, brick pavers and amenities. As with the improvements completed last year along Front Street, the City will make every effort to keep at least one lane of traffic open whenever possible, and businesses will remain accessible using temporary walkways when needed. Downtown Wheaton shops, restaurants and businesses remain open, and they appreciate your business as this project progresses. For information about this project, visit www.wheaton.il.us/downtownstreetscape.
