This site has been created to provide one location where the public can get details about the Willow Road Reconstruction project scope and the construction staging and schedule. The information is intended to help you understand what we will be doing and when the work is anticipated to take place.

As the Department works to make this section of roadway safer for the future, we want to make sure users, residents and local business owners have up to date information on the progress of the project. If you have any questions about the project that have not been answered with the information on this site please use the “Contact Us” section and a response will be sent to you.

WORK ZONE SAFETY

Did you know work zone fatalities are down 29.6 percent compared to 2003? Aggressive law enforcement and awareness campaigns and significant improvements to work zone safety traffic control reduced Illinois work zone fatalities from 44 in 2003, including 5 workers, to provisionally 30 with 3 workers killed in 2010.
So, Give ‘em a brake…slow down for their sake and yours!

IDOT appreciates your patience and understanding as we work to improve the roadways in your community.
