IDOT Wolf Road Reconstruction Project

WolfRd-Construction

The IDOT Wolf Road Reconstruction Project resumes in March. 

This project includes:

  • Total roadway and right of way reconstruction, including the replacement of the 2-lane asphalt road with a concrete 3-lane roadway. Existing drainage ditches will be replaced with underground storm water pipe. 
  • Modernization of 2 signals on Dundee Road and 1 signal on Wolf Road will be accomplished assisting emergency responses. These improvements include emergency vehicle preemption (EVP) devices on all signals, and permanent signal structures installed at Strong Street. 
  • Repair of existing 5’ wide sidewalk and installation of additional sidewalk. 
  • Substantial construction activity including regrading within most of the existing right of way area, removal of all existing asphalt and roadway base material. Improvement of the roadway in an expedited way will require detouring southbound Wolf Road traffic, and incorporating a one-way traffic route northbound for approximately six (6) months due to the complicated nature of the project construction. After that 6 month period, a 2-way traffic pattern would resume for the balance of the project. Limited 2-way traffic would be allowed near major intersections during the 6 months. Southbound Wolf Road traffic during this period would be diverted with detour signage.
  • Landscaping plans
