Wadsworth Road Intersections Update
The LCDOT is continuing to make progress on implementing improvements at the three intersections. Construction has been completed for a single lane roundabout at the Dilleys Road intersection (2020). An interim safety and pedestrian accessibly improvement has been made at the east leg of the US-41 intersection (2021). Improvements at the Kilbourne Road improvement are programmed for construction in 2023, which now will also include a resurfacing up to IL 173. The Phase I Engineering Study for the ultimate improvement at the US-41 intersection is still in Phase I Engineering and is not currently funded for Design Engineering, Land Acquisition, or Construction.

US-41 intersection will proceed as a separate Phase I project.
Following Public Information Meeting #2, the lead agencies agreed that the US-41 intersection will proceed as a separate Phase I project due to the larger comparative scope of improvement and to allow the Dilleys Road and Kilbourne Road intersection improvements to advance towards Phase I Design Approval. A third and final Public Information Meeting will be held in Spring 2017 to present the preferred alternative and detailed engineering design for the Dilleys Road and Kilbourne Road intersection improvements.
