The Champaign Park District is constructing a new Leonhard Recreation Center on the corner of Sangamon and Kenwood across from the current recreation center. Beginning on Monday September 30, large concrete walls will be delivered for the new recreation center and during this time, Sangamon Drive will be closed from the Sholem Parking Lot west to Kenwood Road between the hours of 6am to 5pm daily. The road will be closed from September 30th until Friday October 11th.

Parents will be able to use Sangamon Drive to the east or they can turn south on the Sholem circle drive to exit the area. The construction company also would like to keep all walkers to the west on the north side of Sangamon Drive for safety issues during this time period.
