I-80/Rt 30 Interchange Improvement Project

The IDOT project will improve I-80 from just east of Gougar Road to just east of the bridge over RT 30 as well as RT 30 from just west of Nelson Road to just east of the driveway entrance to Willimasons. The west ramp will have dual left and dual right turn lanes exiting I-80 and dual left and a single right turn lane to get on I-80. The east ramp will have dual right, one thru and one left turn lane exiting I-80 and dual left and a single right turn lane to get on I-80. There will also be a left turn lane for eastbound traffic to turn onto Old Hickory Road. I-80 will be widened to 3 lanes from just east of Gougar Road to where I-80 is currently 3 lanes wide. Work this year will consist mostly of work on I-80 and the bridge. Work on RT 30 should begin in 2020.The completion date for the project is 10/29/2021.

The contractor has shifted traffic onto temporary pavement along I-80 to allow construction of storm sewer in the median area. The contractor has also installed temporary pavement along the RT 30 median to allow work to continue on the south side of RT 30. They will continue to work on storm sewer and paving on I-80 as well as installing temporary pavement along the ramps in advance of future work. The contractor may have lane closures as required on RT 30 and night time lane closures along I-80.

Annual Motor Fuel Tax (MFT) Road Project

The Village of New Lenox is beginning its annual renewal of Village roads.   The project includes approximately 5 miles of roads in the Grand Prairie, Royal Meadows and Meadowview.  The project will consist of the following work:  curb and gutter removal and replacement, sidewalk removal and replacement, grinding 2” of the asphalt surface off of the street and overlaying the road with a new surface coarse of asphalt.  Each week we will be providing updates so those impacted will be able to follow the work.  

Here is the latest update for the  2019 Road Resurfacing Project
