Stevenson Expressway (I-55) Widening Project Will County
As you may know, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has completed
the advance work for the I-55 Corridor Improvement Project. This is a major
project and your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
We are asking for your cooperation this spring as we begin the next stage of
construction starting March 3, 2008 weather permitting. This stage of
construction, from Weber Road to South of I-80, will include resurfacing the
existing roadway, building a third lane, and installing a median barrier wall. I
am confident IDOT will make this process as smooth as possible.
IDOT realizes that construction can pose an inconvenience for the traveling
public. Please know that we are cognizant of the work taking place throughout
the region and the impact it may have on commuters. It is our intent to make
certain that you are kept apprised of all work being done in your area by IDOT.
This construction will help mitigate congestion by allowing us all to enjoy a
safer, smoother, and wider Stevenson Expressway.
On behalf of IDOT, I appreciate your cooperation and patience. If you have any
additional questions, feel free to contact our office at (312) 793-2242.
