The Illinois Department of Transportation is alerting residents that patching and resurfacing of Western Avenue, from Lincoln Highway (U.S. 30), in Chicago Heights, to Steger Road, in Park Forest, will require daytime, intermittent lane closures beginning, weather permitting, beginning Thursday, June 30. The $2.6 million project, which consists of resurfacing the 2.5-mile stretch of Western Avenue and constructing new ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps, is expected to be completed in November. Access to residences and businesses within the work zone will be maintained throughout construction. Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment. Over the next six years, IDOT is planning to improve more than 3,535 miles of highway and nine million square feet of bridge deck as part of the Rebuild Illinois capital program, which is investing $33.2 billion into all modes of transportation. Accomplishments through Year Two included approximately $5.2 billion of improvements statewide on 3,020 miles of highway, 270 bridges and 428 additional safety improvements.
