View Larger Map

Next time you’re making a Walmart run, make sure you don’t hit the road closures that will be in place starting next Thursday, Oct. 3.

As construction of the Kellogg/Seminary overpass is set to begin, sections of Kellogg, Seminary and North streets are set to close from next week until fall 2014, according to a Galesburg Police Department press release. The map above represents the streets that will be closed.

Alternatively, North Seminary Street can be accessed by taking Prairie and Losey streets.

The overpass will be the second of three major railway crossing projects undertaken by the City of Galesburg. The Don Moffitt Overpass, which makes Henderson Street more accessible, was dedicated last year.

The third phase of the project is an underpass at the East Main Street railroad crossing.
