Illinois Route 58 Golf Road at Wolf Road (Cumberland Circle)


General Information
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is conducting a Preliminary Engineering and Environmental (Phase I) Study for the purpose of improving the existing traffic circle for conversion into a modern roundabout. The intersection of Illinois Route 58 at Wolf Road is located in the City of Des Plaines, Cook County. This existing traffic circle has five legs under stop sign control and are under the jurisdiction and maintenance of IDOT: southwest Illinois Route 58 Golf Road, State Street (West), Wolf Road (North), east Illinois Route 58 Golf Road, and Broadway Street (South). All five legs accommodate PACE bus routes and are truck routes. Within the project limits, the existing traffic circle is surrounded by residential housing, churches, schools, parks, and businesses. METRA has a nearby train stop (Cumberland Station); however, it is not within the proposed project limits. Other existing features at the intersection include sidewalks on all legs except along the northbound side of the southwest leg of Golf Road.
