IL-22 from Quentin Road to IL-83

In February 2014, the Illinois Department of Transportation (Department) completed a preliminary engineering and environmental study (Phase I) for the proposed improvement of IL 22 from Quentin Road to IL 83 in Lake County. This improvement is included in the Department’s FY 2017-2022 Proposed Highway Improvement Program. Our current engineering efforts are targeted to enable a contract letting in the later portion of our current multi-year program contingent upon plan readiness, land acquisition, and funding availability through our future annual legislative appropriations.

Note: IDOT projects typically have three distinct phases. Phase I (or the project Study) consists of developing the project scope, environmental studies and preliminary design of a project. Phase II (Design) consists of refining the design to develop contract plans and land acquisition. Phase III (Construction) consists of the actual construction of the project.


As the project progresses, the Department will periodically update this website to assure that the motorists of Illinois are kept informed of project developments, public involvement opportunities, and construction related activities.

The Department is interested in hearing from you. If you have questions or ideas about the project, please fill out the feedback form or contact us at:

IDOT is currently in the contract plan preparation and land acquisition phase (Phase II) of the project.  As we make changes, this website will be updated accordingly.
