Project Description
Improvements for the U19082 State Farm Center - NE Parking Lot Reconstruction project will consist of full-depth base repair and new asphalt pavement at areas of failed or substandard existing asphalt pavement. Other existing asphalt or concrete areas will be overlaid with a new asphalt wearing surface and area reflective crack control treatment. The northernmost perimeter drive aisle will be reconstructed with porous asphalt pavement and underdrain drainage improvements as indicated in the plans. Non-compliant accessible parking and walkways will be retrofitted with an asphalt overlay or reconstructed in concrete to make all grades compliant with current accessibility codes. Reconstruction of additional sidewalk and pavement areas, as well as a trench drain preventing stormwater runoff from leaving the northwest corner of the lot, will be included as bid alternates for the project.

This Project is located at: NE Parking Lot of the State Farm Center, 1800 South First Street, Champaign, Illinois 61820 (southwest of the intersection of Kirby Avenue and Fourth Street).
