Willow Road Construction Update


With the arrival of the summer construction season, motorists can expect ramped-up activity on the $27 million Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) project to widen Willow Road from two to four lanes.

The construction zone runs from the Edens Expressway ramp on the east, to slightly past the Waukegan Road intersection on the west.  Construction highlights of the next few weeks include the contractor removing the pavement lanes on the south side of the right-of-way, and the continuation of utility installation, including new water sanitary and drainage systems.

The contractor will be instituting a new traffic maintenance plan on the Edens Expressway so that crews can begin removing the existing shoulder and installing drainage.  For more information and updates, click here.
