[ARCHIVED] IDOT To Shut Down Road Construction Projects

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will be sending notice to their contractors to stop all construction and prepare to make construction work zones safe for a possible “long-term” shut down by June 30. This road construction shut down is due to the lack of a state budget and an appropriation to fund work after July 1.

This will impact several large projects in Lake County where federal funding is administered by IDOT:

  • Washington Street Grade Separation (LCDOT Project)
  • Deerfield Road – in the Village of Deerfield and City of Highland Park (Municipal & LCDOT Project)
  • Grand Avenue at US 41 in the Village of Gurnee (IDOT Project)
  • IL Route 59 at Petite Lake Road intersection improvement and resurfacing (IDOT Project)

LCDOT will be working with resident engineers and contractors to make sure that the roadways are as safe as possible for the traveling public. Road construction projects that are locally funded will continue as scheduled.
