Project Update | June 2017

The final Public Meeting was held on May 10, 2017. The preferred alternative was presented. This plan proposes to reroute Washington Avenue south of the intersection of IL 59 and Grand Avenue, creating a new signalized intersection with IL 59 and the Grant Community High School Entrance. Visit the Public Meetings page to view the proposed alternative and other meeting exhibits.

Coming up: the project team will submit the final project report to the Illinois Department of Transportation for Phase I design approval. Lake County has applied for federal funding to assist in financing this project. Projects receiving federal funding will be announced this fall.
