FAQs


How does this benefit me?
This project utilizes federal funding to resurface the roadway without any changes to the existing lane configuration. Both regional trail crossings will receive greater prominence with high visibility crosswalks. The Great Western Trail crossing will be re-routed to the signalized St. Charles Road intersection, and the Illinois Prairie Path will receive a pedestrian curb extension and beacon. The traffic signal timings have also been optimized for the Westmore-Meyers corridor.

Will my road be closed?
No road closures are anticipated.

If my driveway is inaccessible where do I park?
Driveways are not anticipated to be inaccessible unless curb replacement is required. The Illinois Prairie Path parking lot will be inaccessible during its driveway apron replacement.

Will my water or sewer service be affected?
Water and sewer services are not anticipated to be affected.

Path Upgrades

The Great Western Trail will be reconfigured to direct trail traffic to cross at St. Charles Road.
