A message from City Water, Light and Power:
Beginning Thursday, May 15, south- and north-bound Shepherd Road at University Drive near UIS will be detoured to 11th Street during daytime work hours, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., for multiple days to accommodate City Water, Light and Power’s water main tap for a new construction project.

To my Lincoln Land family, I would like to express my heartfelt thank you for the kindness and sympathy extended to me after the loss of my mother. It was a great comfort to me and I am deeply grateful to all of you. Julie Rourke
