DuPage County Announces 2018 Road Construction Projects
The DuPage County Division of Transportation (DuDOT) recently announced upcoming road construction projects for 2018.
The construction program focuses on improving the County’s infrastructure. Improvements include pavement patching, resurfacing and traffic signal maintenance.
The County will patch and resurface 42 lane miles of County highways, improving the driving surface and extending the service life of the pavement. Roads to be resurfaced include County Farm Road from Jewell Road to Illinois Route 64 and from Army Trail Road to Schick Road; Schick Road from County Farm Road to Gary Avenue; 75th Street from Illinois Route 59 to Olympus Drive; and 63rd Street from Cass Avenue to Madison Street.
The County will leverage federal funding to perform capital projects that include congestion relief and operational improvements. Capital projects include widening 55th Street between Main Street and Fairview Avenue, providing left turn lanes, modernizing and interconnecting the traffic signals; resurfacing 55th Street from Dunham Road to Williams Street; patching and resurfacing Greenbrook Boulevard from County Farm Road to Lake Street; and expanding the County’s Central Signal System.
The County’s Central Signal System, which allows DuDOT to remotely monitor and observe traffic operations and make adjustments to conditions, will be expanded to include an additional 97 signals and connect to the City of Naperville’s system.
“DuPage County’s transportation plan focuses on ways to reduce congestion and make roadways more passable, while ensuring the safety of motorists and residents,” said Don Puchalski, Chairman of the DuPage County Board Transportation Committee.
In total, the 2018 DuDOT construction program is $22.3 million, which includes County funds, federal funds, and grant funding.
