March 23, 2011 - Public Meeting #4

The fourth Public Meeting was held as part of IDOT’s Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) Process. At the meeting, the two Refined Alternatives were presented to stakeholders. Input on the Refined Alternatives was solicited and will be used to identify the Preferred Alternative.

Refined Alternative E1:
This design features two through lanes in each direction, 10’ paved shoulder on the outside edge of the roadway, and open drainage system for the entire length of project. From Sunset Avenue to IL Rte. 173, a 13’ flush two-way left-turn lane median would be used. From IL Rte. 173 to Russell Road, a 22’ barrier median would be used. This represents a combination of Preliminary Alternatives A1 and B1.
  • Sheet 1 – Sunset Avenue to Chaney Street
  • Sheet 2 – Chaney Street to Taylor Lane
  • Sheet 3 – Taylor Lane to Russell Road
Refined Alternative E2:
This design features two through lanes in each direction, curb & gutter on the outer edge of the roadway, and storm sewer throughout the entire length of the project. From Sunset Avenue to Wadsworth Road, a 13’ flush two-way left-turn lane median would be used. From Wadsworth Road to Russell Road, a 22’ barrier median would be used. This represents a combination of Preliminary Alternatives A2 and B2.
  • Sheet 1 – Sunset Avenue to Chaney Street
  • Sheet 2 – Chaney Street to Taylor Lane
  • Sheet 3 – Taylor Lane to Russell Road

The next steps of the project are to identify the Preferred Alternative based on stakeholder input, feedback from the Project Study Group (PSG), and the Purpose and Need of the project. It will combine the best elements from the Refined Alternatives to most effectively address the deficiencies of the project and meet the Purpose and Need.
