The Illinois Department of Transportation has initiated a preliminary engineering and environmental study (Phase I) for the improvement of Glenwood Dyer Road from Stony Island Avenue to Camelot Lane, a 0.8-mile stretch located within the Village of Lynwood and in unincorporated Cook County. The proposed project is anticipated to consist of widening and resurfacing Glenwood Dyer Road to provide a continuous median and left turn lanes, as well as the installation of a shared-use path to accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians. This improvement is included in the Department’s FY 2017-2022 Proposed Highway Improvement Program, utilizing funding through the federal Highway Safety Improvement program. Our current engineering efforts are targeted to enable a contract letting in the middle years 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.
