Excess Property Sales

IDOT purchases land needed for highway purposes. State statute (605 ILCS 5/4-508(a)) allows Property Auctions to be held by the department to dispose of excess land or improvements no longer needed for highway purposes.

Auction

Sales are normally held on the site, at a nearby public facility or other convenient locations. Sales may consist of parcels of land, usually small and irregularly shaped, structures such as houses, barns, and buildings, and also personal property such as refrigerators, air-conditioners, furnaces, mobile homes, etc. There are no set schedules for these disposal auctions, but rather they are held where and when the situation warrants. Payment methods are subject to sale category, but generally are due on the date of sale.

IDOT maintains a free, Property Auction Catalog showing all properties currently being offered and information on recently concluded transactions. Specific terms, dates, and locations are available by listing.
