Illinois Route 394 at Burville Road

The Illinois Department of Transportation (Department) has initiated a preliminary engineering and environmental study (Phase I) for the improvement of Illinois Route 394 at Burville Road in Crete Township in Will County due to the numerous severe crashes in recent years. The proposed project is anticipated to consist of intersection improvements through the introduction of a Restricted Crossing U-Turn (RCUT). The RCUT is an innovative and proven solution that improves safety and operations by changing how Burville Road traffic crosses or turns left at Illinois Route 394. The RCUT does not change any of the movements that are possible from Illinois Route 394. This improvement is not currently included in the Department's FY 2019-2024 Proposed Highway Improvement Program.  However, this project will be included in the Department’s priorities for future funding consideration among similar improvement needs throughout the region.

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.
