The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that a total of 20 pavement patching projects at locations in Will County are scheduled to begin Monday, weather permitting.
The improvements consist of intermittent pavement repairs at each location for several days at a time. The projects could require reducing the roadway to a single lane of traffic with flaggers present during the daytime hours where construction is taking place.
The first three locations are all on Route 53: Between Renwick and Normantown roads in Romeoville, between Patterson and Laraway roads in Joliet, and between West Millsdale and West Manhattan roads near Elwood.
The remaining locations are:
Joliet: Route 7 (Theodore Street) from Larkin Avenue to Route 30, Route 6 from Walnut Street to Parkwood Drive, Route 30 from Briggs Street to Page Avenue, Route 52 from Route 59 to Essington Road, Washington Street from Route 30 to Briggs Street, Richards Street from Route 52 to Mills Road, and Interstate 80 east frontage at Larkin Avenue.
Homer Glen: Route 6 from Haas Road to Will-Cook Road.
New Lenox: Route 30 from I-80 to Prairie Road.
Plainfield: Route 30 from 111th Street and 135th Street.
Manhattan: Route 52 from West Delaney Road to West Manhattan Road, Route 52 just south and north of West Bruns Road, and Route 52 from Hoff Road to Route 45.
