Illinois 131 Green Bay Road Study

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has initiated a Phase I Engineering Study for Illinois Route 131 / Green Bay Road from Russell Road to Sunset Avenue and will follow the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) process and encourage extensive public involvement throughout the development process.

A public hearing for the study is scheduled for Thursday, November 16, 2017 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Beach Park Middle School.  Additional information can be found at the project website:

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.
