IDOT/Lake County Traffic Advisories:
Traffic Shifts and Lane Reductions Scheduled at the I-94/Grand Avenue Interchange Beginning Week of March 9th
The Illinois Tollway has announced plans to restart work on the I-94/Grand Avenue Interchange project beginning next week. Weather permitting, the ramp carrying traffic from westbound I-94 to eastbound Grand Avenue will be reduced to one lane for ramp reconstruction. Work will also include retaining wall construction along the east side of the ramp. The ramp is scheduled to reopen to two lanes of traffic in spring, with all work on this ramp scheduled to be completed this summer. The $19.4 million Interchange Project is scheduled to be completed this year.
Included in the reconstruction of the ramps of the Grand Avenue Interchange Project is the installation of a ramp detection system along westbound I-94 to monitor congestion on the exit ramp to Grand Avenue. When completed, the system will alert motorists to potential traffic backups ahead. Construction information about the Grand Avenue Interchange Project is available in the “Projects by Roadway” section in the Construction/Planning section on the Tollway’s website
2015 Village Crack Sealing Program
What Is the Crack Sealing Program?
Crack sealing is a process of routing the cracks, cleaning the cracks, and then finally sealing the cracks. This keeps the moisture out of the sub-base to extend the life of the pavement. The sealer will take about ten minutes to dry. Streets will be swept within 48 hours of the work to clean up the debris from routing. Residents are asked to refrain from parking on the roadway while the work is being completed on their street until sweeping of the entire street is completed.
If you have any questions, please contact the Engineering Division at 847-599-7550 between the hours 7:30 am and 4:00 pm.
