There's a LOT to look at in this document, but since I'm from the Joliet area, I'm going to focus on that area.

The 80th Avenue bridge in Mokena/Tinley Park has a deck that's in god-awful shape as well, but the repair/replacement of that bridge might be included in the county-level reconstruction that's slated to take place this year.[/li][/list]

I live in Tinley Park, I think I saw something in a local newspaper that said the bridge replacement was included in the county-level reconstruction, because I think they're widening 80th between 191st and 183rd (and over I-80) between the construction.

If you look at the village webpage (https://www.tinleypark.org/government/current_projects/index.php) and scroll all the way down, it doesn't explicitly say that they're replacing the bridge, but if they don't replace the bridge, the widening project is going to be effectively useless.

Trib article says the I-80 bridge widening is included in the county project.

--- Quote from: paulthemapguy on January 28, 2022, 10:36:56 AM ---It looks like I-55 is getting a repave from "south of Weber to south of I-80", costing over $51 million for construction alone. And it looks to be programmed for this year?

--- End quote ---

That repave has been needed since about a year or two after IDOT widened it.  Whatever pavement mix they used is terrible.

--- Quote from: paulthemapguy on January 28, 2022, 10:36:56 AM ---A new interchange looks like it'll be constructed at I-55 and Airport Road/Lockport Street in Plainfield. Does anyone know what the configuration is supposed to look like?
It looks like interchange reconstruction is slated for I-55 and IL-126 as well.

I've seen quite a few studies on it.  It is, quite frankly, amazing that both will be built.

--- Quote from: paulthemapguy on January 28, 2022, 10:36:56 AM ---It looks like US Route 52 (Jefferson St.) will be widened to four lanes west to River Road in Shorewood, and the interchange at I-55 will look a bit different.  The two access points created by the I-55 ramps are too close together, so I hope spacing those points apart (or combining them into a SPUI!) will take place.

Should've been a SPUI when it was rebuilt from a squished cloverleaf in 1993.

Totally agreed on all three counts. Thanks for the link to the study.  I'd seen it years ago but had no idea they've made that much progress since then.  I'm still unclear though on which alternatives they actually chose-- they must have decided already if the interchanges are already planned for construction, right?

--- End quote ---

They've chosen both Alternative 5 and Alternative 28 on the link.  Airport Road will be a SPUI - it's admittedly a bit tight there.  IL-126 will be a westward-facing diamond - there's a wetland to the east blocking any eastward connections (which is why Romeville dearly wanted the Airport Road interchange).

The bridge replacement is part of the contract - the contract plans are available at https://apps.dot.illinois.gov/eplan/desenv/012122/149-61G73/

EDIT:  Where is six laning I-80 from Ridge to US 30 specifically mentioned?  Last I heard that whole stretch was going to be reconstructed, but with a few sections remaining at four lanes.

As to the I-57/Eagle Lake Road interchange:  it may be a revised version of the Peotone Airport access road.  Based on https://www.southsuburbanairport.com/masterplan/reports/Access-Report-Plan2012-07-31.pdf, the airport access road interchange was to be at Offner Road.  There's also the project for 'railroad crossing construction' on Eagle Lake Road - something I would hope would not be done on an airport access roadway.

I highly doubt that airport will ever be built. There has been no support for it. If it were built it would be Chicago's version of Mid America airport.
