Description: A modernization improvement at the intersection of Stearns School Road and US41 in unincorporated Lake County.

Progress Bar (Design)

Current Information

The project is in Phase II, detailed engineering design and land acquisition is currently in progress. Once Phase II is complete, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will lead the construction efforts. The proposed intersection improvements include:

  • The addition of a southbound right turn lane and left turn lane on US41, a second left turn lane on northbound US41, a second right turn lane on eastbound Stearns School Road, an additional westbound receiving lane on Stearns School Road, and intersection radii improvements.
  • Storm sewer laterals, including the 36” culvert under Stearns School Road, will be extended due to the roadway widening. US41 median storm sewer will also be reconstructed to account for the new median configuration on the south leg of US41.
  • Relocation of the existing 8-inch ductile iron water main to address multiple recorded repairs and to relocate the water main outside of the proposed pavement.
