PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS


127th Street Reconstruction
This project includes reconstruction of 127th Street from Heggs Road to roughly 150’ east of the Northwest Community Park Entrance. The roadway will be widened to allow for dedicated left turn lanes and a painted median and new curb and gutter will replace the existing ditches. The existing culvert within the project limits will be replaced with a new structure and a shared-use path will be constructed along the entire length of the project. Construction began in the fall of 2016 and will resume in the spring of 2017. 127th Street Design Presentation

A Public Information Meeting was held on November 18, 2015 to discuss the project. 11/18/15 Presentation.

   
143rd Street Extension - Engineering
The extension of 143rd Street, from IL 59 to IL 126, over the DuPage River, and its designation as the Illinois 126 will open a much needed east-west corridor. The Village received Phase I Design Approval from IDOT and FHWA and is currently in the Phase II detailed engineering of the project. The Village is also working with ComEd on the final details of the corridor. The goal is to have this project to the stage where it could take advantage of alternative funding for construction, when available. Construction of the roadway will be a combined effort of local, state, and federal agencies.

I-55 Interchange Improvements - Engineering
The Villages of Romeoville, Bolingbrook, and Plainfield, along with IDOT, are leading the Phase I Study and Planning process in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The study area for potential interchange improvements along I-55 extends from Route 30 to Weber Road. Currently, the only access within the study corridor limits is an eastbound entrance and westbound exit at Route 126. The current study will evaluate potential alternative interchange locations.

Lockport Street Bypass Feasibility Study - Engineering
The objective of this study is to develop a preferred alternative for traffic to travel through the Lockport Street/IL Route 126 corridor by evaluating a reasonable range of alternatives. This study is closely related to the I-55 Interchange Improvements and focuses on potential impacts from an interstate interchange at Lockport Street. The initial alternatives for the study are being developed in a way that minimize property and environmental impacts as much as possible. Lockport Bypass Corridor Report Presentation. The preferred alternative for the Lockport Street Bypass will be integrated and studied further as part of the I-55 Interchange Improvements.

US Route 30 - Construction
This project consists of reconstructing and widening US Route 30 from approximately I-55 to IL Route 59. Two through lanes in each direction with a median will be provided from I-55 to Renwick Road and one through lane in each direction with a median will be provided from Renwick Road to IL Route 59. Also included in the project will be the construction of a shared-use path, sidewalk, intersection improvements, drainage improvements, and the upgrade of Village of Plainfield utilities. All of the mainline concrete pavement has been completed with work on the permanent traffic signals to continue throughout the winter and early 2017. The overall project is scheduled to be completed by June 30, 2017. Motorists should expect longer than average commute times when traveling through the construction zone.
