North Main Tavern Relocates Due to Roundabout

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Crews aren't expected to start work on the North Main roundabout in Rockford until the spring. However, a local bar is starting to move out right now.

After nearly 80 years in our community... North Main Tavern is planning its last celebration, which will take place Saturday night, as the business prepares to relocate. The pub is right at the corner of auburn and main. You may remember, the city acquired the property to make way for a new two-lane roundabout. Longtime customers say it's truly the end of an era.

"The business is going to move on, everybody that comes down here will move with it, whether they've been coming here for a long time or just started coming here," said Marie Cellitti.

We're told the owners are still deciding between two locations. Construction for the roundabout is expected to begin in April.
