The project, which consists of significant bridge repairs, safety improvements, new lighting, upgraded signing and drainage improvements, will restore the road and bridges to a smooth and safe condition for motorists and will support future investment in the region. The work will be completed under a full closure for approximately six months and is scheduled to begin in early 2025.

Handouts and display boards will be available for public review. Representatives from IDOT and the project consultant, Chastain & Associates LLC, will be available to discuss the project and answer questions, including discussions of alternative routes while I-255 is under construction. The meeting will be held in an open house format. You may come and go at any time during the scheduled meeting hours. No formal presentation will be made.
