The Study

The Illinois Department of Transportation is currently performing a preliminary engineering and environmental study that will consider safety improvements to the intersection of US Route 52 and County Line Road near the Villages of Shorewood and Minooka. Several alternative solutions will be developed and evaluated for improved traffic control at the intersection. Roadway alignment changes may be considered as well.

The study area is located in Troy Township (Will County) and Seward Township (Kendall County). As part of this study, crash data will be collected and analyzed to understand crash patterns. The results of this analysis will lead to proposed countermeasures to mitigate existing deficiencies and safety concerns. The project team will evaluate expected effectiveness of safety countermeasures, the cost of improvements, and stakeholder input when determining the preferred alternative.

This project is not currently in the Department’s FY 2022-2027 Proposed Highway Improvement Program. However, it is anticipated that the project will become eligible for Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funding after the Phase I is completed.
