Welcome to our web site for the IL Route 60/83 Study.
The project study limits extend from IL Route 176, at the north, to the intersection of IL Route 60 (Townline Road) and IL Route 83. The proposed improvements are anticipated to address roadway and operational deficiencies, traffic safety, traffic congestion, and delays.
The Department presented the alternatives carried forward including grade separation alternatives at the second public meeting held on October 22, 2013. Subsequent to the last public meeting, the Department performed additional engineering and environmental analyses to address resource agency comments. The preferred alternative was presented at a Community Advisory Group (CAG) meeting on November 17, 2016. A public hearing is targeted for the spring of 2017. The Phase I portion of the project is anticipated to be complete in 2017.
The contract plan preparation (Phase II), land acquisition (Phase II), and construction (Phase III) are not currently included in the Department’s Fiscal Year 2017-2022 Proposed Highway Improvement Program. This project will be included in our priorities for future funding consideration among similar improvement needs throughout the region once a sustainable funding source is identified.
As this study progresses, this web site will be expanded to include a wide variety of information related to the Study. Please visit regularly to access the latest information.
