List of projects for the March 6, 2020 Letting is up

* Item 113:  "Converting the IL 13 and Aurelia Drive intersection into a restricted crossing U-turn (RCUT) intersection"
I would assume that is similar to the “Michigan Left” that was installed slightly east of this location, at IL 13 and Norman Rd. Norman Rd and Main St/Old 13 used to cross IL 13 at one location - IDOT broke it up a couple years ago

Michigan Left-style signage for Norman Rd traffic turning onto IL 13: https://goo.gl/maps/eeTp1MZuGX5deXFV8

This is what should be done to IL-59.

I know some people in the Illinois Notes thread will be very very pleased about this!

This 4-way stop can back up for eons, especially the westbound approach.  This intersection really does need a signal.

Good to see that this is finally in the pipeline this year. Usually a PITA to drive through there, not only because of the congestion but the pavement isn't in the best condition either.

It's not really that bad through there, I'd say I-57 through Roseland, Pullman and Morgan Park is worse.

Gov said today all construction public and private can continue. I assume it's because it's mostly outside and they can distance.
The microsurface  on 67 south of Roseville . It's between Roseville and Monmouth that needs it.
Also widening through Hubbard's cave ?

Are you kidding?  I used to drive that stretch every day.  As soon as it was three-laned, the pavement started deteriorating almost immediately.  I was just through that section yesterday, and it was deplorable.

I'm never wrong, just wildly inaccurate.

I was through there on 3/7-3/8 and it didn't seem too bad then. I57 from 111th to Calsag and I90 from IL 43 to 90/94 is definitely worse but resurfacing is coming to that section this year

That's good to hear. They should continue considering that it's easier for construction to continue in areas that might normallly have high traffic volumes. Provided they take necessary precautions, of course.

It's terrible, did you not see all the potholes in between the lanes?

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) - The Illinois Commerce Commission's budget for Crossing Safety Improvements includes the 10th Street corridor's Springfield Rail Improvements Project.

The $33 million will go towards funding new underpasses along the project. Those projects are below:

Madison Street: $11 million
Jefferson Street: $11 million
North Grand Avenue: $11 million
The project along 10th street will allow the relocation of the Union Pacific Railroad (Amtrak) tracks from Third Street to 10th Street. It will also construct new underpasses at key locations in Springfield.

When it is finished it should reduce rail crossing accidents by 80 percent and reduce vehicle delays at crossings by 70 percent. It will also reduce noise.

“The City of Springfield and Sangamon County are grateful for the ICC’s continued support,” stated Springfield Mayor Jim Langfelder. “Our city along with communities across Illinois and this country are facing incredible challenges. This commitment allows us to continue our progress, not only moving trains from Third Street to 10th Street by 2025, but also securing the long awaited Quiet Zone along the Third Street corridor.”

Based on Item 139 on April 2020 Letting, it looks like District 7 can be added to the flashing yellow arrow list, with a few being installed on US 36 in the Decatur area.
