Welcome to the U.S. Route 30 Reconstruction Project


November 2012
Mainline paving work is proceeding. Much of the Stage 2 pavement has been completed and the remaining mainline pours are scheduled to be completed by the end of November (weather permitting). If weather allows, the intent is to provide 2 lanes in each direction on US 30 thru this coming winter. Starting in Spring of 2013, one lane in each direction will be closed to allow completion of medians, driveways, sidewalks, bikepaths and landscaping. Overall completion is expected to be mid summer of 2013

June 2012
Last year’s utility relocation work has impacted the overall completion date of the project. IDOT and their contractors are working toward completing the mainline pavements by late Fall of this year. Remaining work, such as median turn lanes, traffic signals and landscaping will extend into mid-summer of 2013.

The Illinois Department of Transportation has started a project to reconstruct and widen US Route 30. This project will extend from Williams Street in New Lenox to Harlem Avenue in Frankfort.

The reconstruction project consists of many features, including but not limited to: reconstructing the roadway, addition of new lanes and installation of a concrete median extending for nine miles on US Route 30 through New Lenox, Frankfort and Mokena.

Bike paths, sidewalks, curbs, gutters and sound walls and an improved storm water drainage system will be added as well.

The project is expected to be completed by Fall 2012 (weather permitting).

This site has been created to facilitate public input and communicate information about the project and schedule. We invite you to explore the site and provide your comments or travel experiences regarding the project through our "Contact Us" section.

This site will be updated periodically as the project start date approaches. In addition, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will maintain the website throughout the project duration and update the project information, project publications, comment forms and links to other area projects. IDOT appreciates your patience and urges the motoring public to begin to take necessary steps like car pooling and flexible work schedules to avoid traffic.

IDOT is dedicated to providing the residents of Illinois with interstates, state routes, and mass transit options that are safe, and ensure the highest quality of life. IDOT wants to improve public awareness and involvement through improved external communications from the public. Please check back periodically for web site updates. The Illinois Department of Transportation looks forward to your input and support throughout this project.
