Construction Update – 3/24/15

Work on Peterson Road is scheduled to resume on Monday, March 30th. Initial work will include finishing the items located in the medians. In order to complete the work, the left lane on Peterson Road will be closed in each direction. At this time, it is anticipated the work remaining in the medians on Illinois Route 83 can be completed using daily lane closures and therefore lane reductions will not be necessary during non-working hours.

As noted in the last post before shutting down from for the winter, the following major work items remain to be completed:
• Eastbound Peterson Road right turn lane to southbound Illinois Route 83
• Eastbound Peterson Road left turn lane tapers to northbound Illinois Route 83
• (The first 500 feet of the turn lanes are complete.)
• Eastbound Peterson Road left side left turn lane to northbound Midlothian Road
• Various locations of median curb along Peterson Road as well as curb radii at Illinois Route 83
• Final asphalt surface course on Illinois Route 83
• Corrugated median at south Illinois Route 83 limits
• Permanent traffic signals
• Permanent landscaping

It is anticipated that the work in the medians will take about a month to finish. Upon completion, the right lane in each direction will be closed on Peterson Road so work can be finished outside of the shoulders.

Please continue to use caution and watch for workers when driving though the site. Thank you for your continued patience as we work to complete this project!

Construction Update – 3/12/15

With spring just around the corner, construction will resume shortly on Peterson Road and on Illinois Route 83. It is currently anticipated construction crews will begin work in the first full week of April when the weather stabilizes. When construction begins, a lane in each direction will be closed on Peterson Road throughout the construction limits. In addition, lane reductions on Illinois Route 83 will also be necessary. As the start date approaches and the work plan is finalized, more information regarding start dates and lane configurations will be posted.

Please note periodic work on the new traffic signals as well as other off the shoulder work may be scheduled before the lanes are fully closed in April. Please continue to use caution and watch for workers when driving though the site.

Thank you for your continued patience as we work to complete this project!
