DuPage County to Improve 87th Street at Woodward Avenue Intersection

The DuPage County Division of Transportation is scheduled to begin work to improve the intersection of 87th Street and Woodward Avenue in early May.

Crews will widen the pavement to construct dual left-turn lanes in the northbound, eastbound, and westbound directions and right-turn lanes in the eastbound and westbound directions at the intersection. Work also includes a new traffic signal, traffic signal modifications at the Costco entrance, storm sewer improvements, sidewalk improvements, and street lighting modifications.

“This project will help to reduce congestion on 87th Street and Woodward Avenue, which will also improve the overall safety of the intersection,” said DuPage County Transportation Committee Chairman Don Puchalski.

Lane closures will be necessary to complete this project. Construction is expected to be completed at the end of 2022.
