IL Route 53 Expansion

IL Route 53 ExpansionAfter four years of work by a group of businesses, government, and environmental leaders in Lake County, there is finally some forward movement for the IL Route 53/120 project. On December 17, 2016, the Illinois Toll Highway Authority Board unanimously approved a resolution authorizing an EIS for the project.

The EIS process will study alignment alternatives, environmental impacts, financial feasibility, and a “no build” scenario. Authorizing the EIS is a giant step forward in advancing traffic congestion mitigation and economic growth for Lake County.
