Beginning Monday, May 22, two sections of Green St. between Wright St. and Goodwin Ave. will close to through traffic as construction resumes on Multimodal Corridor Enhancement (MCORE) Project 1 (see map). Significant detours for vehicular and pedestrian traffic will occur for primary campus locations:

Illini Union
The Union will remain open throughout construction; however, the building’s north circle drive and entrance will temporarily close. The east, west, and south building entrances will be open. Vehicles should approach the Union from Springfield Ave., traveling south on Mathews Ave. onto Green St. (see Union map).

Mathews Ave.
Traffic flow will switch to southbound only from Springfield Ave. to Green St.

Green St. - Sidewalks
Pedestrian access will be maintained on one side of the street and will vary depending upon construction activities.

Engineering Hall
Vehicular access from Mathews Ave. onto Green St. will remain throughout this phase of construction.

More information about MCORE and a question form is at When necessary, updates on bus reroutes and temporary stop locations will be at: or the MTD’s Facebook and Twitter feeds.

The University, the City of Champaign, the City of Urbana, and the MTD appreciate your patience as the MCORE team works to provide for a more sustainable and connected transportation network in the core of our community.
