Yes it is widening the 2 lane North of Monmouth. Not 4 lane but there is some. New 2 lane alignment. The road is in terrible shape. It's needed this for decades.
The freeway pretty much died about the time Illinois 1 did. The FHWA said it was too close to 74 and suggested the corridor that now exists.
The EPA told IDOT that Indiana was connecting the cities in Indiana that the freeway was to serve.

A couple that jumped out to me that you didn't mention.
-"Resurfacing of Eola Rd from US 34 Ogden Ave to Oakhurst Dr (near McCoy Dr) in Aurora."
Needed but not looking forward to the backups on Eola.
-"Resurfacing, curb and gutter, sidewalk replacement, ornamental lighting, brick paver sidewalk, landscaping and pavement markings on IL 171 from 11th Street to 10th Street and on IL 7 from IL 171 to Hamilton Street in Lockport."
Pretty sure IDOT just did some reconstruction on 171 there last year or the year before.

Item 12: Wonder if that's alongside the I-294 project

Item 111: I can agree, this intersection was due for this

Item 112: Big time, that intersection can be a bit hairy on occasion

Item 12: Wonder if that's alongside the I-294 project

Not sure if it was part of plan to time it with the I-294 work or whether it's just the way things played out.

Page 83 has a note about the mast arm lengths accommodating future flashing yellow arrow operations.

The signals at Orchard and Aucutt and Orchard and Rochester are both heavily overbuilt.  What could they be possibly adding?  An interconnect?

The plans have the Orchard Road signals being converted to flashing yellow arrow operation, with a "dynamic operation" for the WB Aucutt to SB Orchard left turn that use a flashing yellow arrow when the ped phase is active and a green arrow otherwise.

I found the shoulder reconstruction on Illinois 1 interesting. They are narrowing travel lanes and widening paved shoulders from 3 to 4 feet.

Update on last letting. The trees are down on US 67 in Warren . The design is nice the 35 mph curve complete reconstruction. Travel lanes will be 12 feet. Some stretches are 11 and the shoulders will go from nothing to 5 feet paved with 3 feet of gravel.

I found the shoulder reconstruction on Illinois 1 interesting. They are narrowing travel lanes and widening paved shoulders from 3 to 4 feet.

This got my curiosity, as rural sections are usually not narrowed if they are truck routes. To me it looks like the lanes are staying at 11.5' and the shoulders are being widened from 4' to 4.5', with part of the shoulder being improved from a thin gravel wedge to an 8" depth hot-mix asphalt shoulder. The existing pavement is 12.5' each direction with the stripe set in 1 foot from the edge, creating essentially an 11.5' lane and a 1' paved shoulder in each direction. The proposed pavement shows 12' each direction (including the stripe set at 11.5') being undisturbed, and then cutting into the outer part of the paved shoulder and adding 4 feet to what looks like a half foot of existing paved shoulder outside the stripe.

Also isn't 67 more typical adding the shoulder during repaving or reconstruction?
Not complaining both initial freeway rejects need work. The Warren County segment of 67 is just an embarrassing stretch of road. Irving be after this.
They got a bid under estimate too.
125 from 97 to Pleasant Plains is really nice. 8 to 10 foot shoulders. Higher volume and a secondary not primary.

I did see something on this not too long ago. According to the Kane County DOT website, Bunker Rd is going to go under the IP tracks before swinging over to La Fox Rd and be the thru road.

I have not seen a timetable on it though.

I just wonder how much longer since they’ve been talking about these projects for almost two decades.

List of projects for the June 11, 2021 Letting is up

Some of the more noteworthy projects:

* Item 2:  Guardrail work and retroreflective signal backplates (going off the pay item listing) on US 20 from IL 47 to Ontarioville Road (just west of IL 390).

* Item 89:  Wireless interconnect and traffic signal work on 143rd in Orland Park from US 45 to Wolf Road.

* Item 106 (already deleted) would have replaced the Waldron Road/Maple Street overpass over I-57 in Kankakee along with a few other improvements.

* Item 154 involves a new traffic signal and intersection improvements with realignment for IL 176 at Nish Road.

* Item 155 has deck replacement for I-55 at IL 53 and superstructure replacement for I-55 at Joliet Road in Bolingbrook.

* Item 158 has expansion joint replacement and other bridge work for I-55 over the Kankakee River (doesn't seem like it has been that long since those bridges were last worked on).

I wonder why they are choosing to resurface the stretch of IL137 from state line to the amstutz this year rather than the stretch from the  amstutz to US41 as that stretch is probably the worst conditioned pavement in the entire district.

That is a very good question.  There are traffic signal pay items listed - no permanent mast arms but a lot for a span wire signal.  Could be an interim fix?

Item 206: Is that just the bridge or an interchange fix?

I'm willing to bet a bridge replacement.  Many of those bridges haven't been touched since I-55 was widened there back in the late 1970s/early 1980s or so.  Nary a week goes by where at least one of these needs an emergency repair between IL-53 and County Line Road where there's a hole in the freaking bridge.

Lemont Road north: https://goo.gl/maps/UBaooVmiKntLnD1x9
Lemont Road south: https://goo.gl/maps/s3bKckx38f9E85zj7

Lemont Road seems to be one of the better ones, oddly enough.

Some shoulder only projects like Illinois 1 last month . 34 near Earlville will have  4.5 foot on paved compared to the current 1.5. Not much consistency. 67 north of Monmouth 5 feet 125 near Pleasant Plains looks 7 or 8.P
Also looks like some projects moved up from next fy. Their money situation must be better.

https://goo.gl/maps/5Ki63F6doLpFCgPy7 (Yes, that's wood under the girders on the left)

Those pieces of wood are just to support human bodies as they work on building or rehabilitating the bridge deck/superstructure.  They bridge the gap between flanges with pieces of wood, and sometimes plywood is added on top of those; then people stand on top of them as they paint/saw/rebar etc. They have no real impact on the bridge's structural integrity, so the construction workers often just forget about them and leave some or all of them there.

That pushes the 6-laning of I-57 between Mt Vernon and Marion from West Frankfort (which was the previous segment) up to the southern end of Rend Lake/just north of Benton

Maybe I-57 really will ultimately become a 6-lane Freeway between I-24 and I-64

With this project and the others mentioned here, the only remaining 6-lane gap in that section will be south of Marion to I-24.
