IDOT Plans for 55th Street

  • A public hearing was held by the Illinois Department of Transportation on August 24 at the Pleasantview Fire Station regarding its plans for improvements to 55th street between Wolf Road and Brainard. The proposal is part of IDOT's overall plan for area roads as a result of a settlement of a law suit with Vulcan Materials regarding the closure of Joliet Road in 1998 between East Avenue and 55th Street. The proposal, which is still in the initial stages and has not yet been funded, would provide, among other things for the widening and resurfacing of 55th street between Wolf Road and Brainard Avenue, drainage improvements which are being coordinated with efforts of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District and other local communities to address drainage issues in the area.
