Lake St. Construction Begins

IDOT has begun work to patch and resurface Lake Street between Summerfield Drive and I-355. The work will be completed in two phases with Phase 1 in 2019 and Phase 2 in 2020. The work will include:

  • Resurfacing of the pavement on Lake Street between I-355 and Glen Ellyn Road.  The existing concrete base will be patched and a new asphalt wearing (surface) course will be placed over the concrete base.  (Phase 1 - summer 2019);
  • Manhole adjustments/reconstruction (Phase 1 & 2);
  • Restriping of Lake Street pavement, including crosswalks (Phase 1 & 2);
  • Removal and replacement of brick paver sidewalks at select locations to concrete (Phase 1 & 2);
  • Selected traffic signal detector loop replacement along Lake Street and selected intersecting roads (Phase 1 & 2); and
  • Pavement patching of the concrete section of roadway west of Glen Ellyn Road to Summerfield Road. (Phase 2 - summer 2020).

Phase 1 work began at the end of May 1, 2019 and is expected to be completed by August. The contractor work hours are generally between 7AM-4PM with no work on Sunday.

Lane closures are planned to be one lane closed in each direction at most times for the duration of the project but there will be times when two lanes will be closed in each direction at less frequent times depending on the type of work being completed, such as lane closure of the inner lane or during pavement patching and paving operations.

Motorists are encouraged to use Army Trail as an alternate route during the construction.
