Major Will County Projects Highlight Year Five of Rebuild Illinois 

LANE-CLOSURE

Entering Year Five of Rebuild Illinois, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced that multiple projects in the Will County area are planned or underway, highlighting an ongoing commitment made possible by Gov. JB Pritzker’s historic, bipartisan capital program.

Five major projects represent a total investment of more than $45 million, improving safety, mobility and quality of life while sustaining and creating good-paying jobs throughout the region.

“Rebuild Illinois is revitalizing communities and neighborhoods by investing in projects and people in the Will County area and throughout the state,” said Pritzker. “Through the largest capital program in state history, IDOT will be delivering improvements to build a more resilient, accessible and equitable system of transportation for generations to come, while creating jobs and enhancing local quality of life.”

The five projects are all scheduled to be completed through 2024:

  • Illinois 7/53 from Caton Farm Road to Theodore Street in Crest Hill and Joliet, ongoing project includes bridge deck resurfacing. Daytime lane closures are required to complete construction. The project began this summer and anticipated to be completed later this fall.
