Illinois Route 120 / Gilmer Rd

Description: This study involves potential relocation of a portion of Gilmer Road, a western extension of Ellis Drive, intersection improvements at Volo Village Road and US Route 12, and various traffic signal improvements.

Coordination with stakeholders, the Villages of Lakemoor and Volo and the Illinois Department of Transportation has been ongoing. Traffic volumes and patterns, along with existing and future land use issues make this a very challenging project. The goal is to achieve consensus among stakeholders as to which alternative satisfies the numerous needs of the area.
