DuPage County Announces Annual Road Construction Plan

July 1, 2024

The DuPage County Division of Transportation recently announced its 2024 Construction Program, focusing on maintaining and improving the County's infrastructure.

The Construction Program proposes $36.1 million in federal and County funds to maintain existing infrastructure, while implementing projects to improve safety and relieve congestion. Fifty-seven lane miles of DuPage County highway are due to be resurfaced under the plan. These projects will improve rideability and extend the service life of existing pavement.

"Our goal for the annual Transportation Construction Program is to maintain or improve the safety and accessibility of our roads in a comprehensive and cost-effective manner," said Transportation Committee Chair Mary FitzGerald Ozog. "Our larger projects aim to reduce the congestion, ensure the state of good repair of our capital facilities, and improve the overall mobility for residents, workers, and visitors in DuPage County."

The major road projects in 2024 include:

  • Completion of the intersection improvement at 87th Street and Woodward Avenue
  • Reconstruction of the Geneva Road bridge over the West Branch DuPage River
  • Reconstruction and widening of Fabyan Parkway in West Chicago west of Illinois Route 38/Roosevelt Road
  • Intersection improvements on Lemont Road from 83rd Street to 87th Street
  • Roadway and intersection improvements on Naperville Road between Ridgeland Avenue and Interstate 88
  • Reconstruction of the Warrenville Road bridge over the East Branch DuPage River
  • York Road reconstruction from Devon Avenue to north of Illinois Route 19/Irving Park Road

In addition to these larger projects, major roadways to be resurfaced include:

  • Finley Road from Butterfield Road to Ogden Avenue
  • Meyers Road from Roosevelt Road to Butterfield Road
  • Warrenville Road from Illinois Route 53 to Finley Road
  • Winfield Road from Warrenville Road to Diehl Road
  • Medinah Road from Irving Park Road to Army Trail Road
  • Villa Avenue south of Lake Street to North Avenue
  • Swift Road (Collins Avenue to St. Charles Road)
  • St. Charles Road (Riford Road to Illinois Route 53)

The County Board approved the annual Construction Program as part of its five-year Transportation Improvement Program, which runs through 2028.

The plan dedicates more than $327 million in federal and County funds over the next five years for road safety and congestion projects. Approximately $50 million will be allocated to improve rideability and extend the service life of existing pavement. Another $32 million will be utilized for bridge repair. The plan also includes a new highway maintenance facility as part of the Division of Transportation's ongoing effort to modernize its services. The program also emphasizes new and improved bikeways and multiuse paths, as well as drainage projects that will relieve areas of chronic flooding.
