Illinois 84 Colona

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has undertaken a study of IL Route 84 through the city of Colona from the Rock River to 0.2 miles north of US 6. This study will examine the transportation needs to serve both the local community and the region. The project proposes to reconstruct IL 84 just west of 7th Street to the BNSF tracks with patching and resurfacing west of 7th Street and south of the BNSF tracks. This project also proposes signalizing the intersection of IL 84 and Cleveland Road. The study includes a public involvement process with opportunities for stakeholder input and feedback. Construction is currently unfunded.

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.

The IL 84 project involves a study to reconstruct IL 84 through Colona. The existing pavement is approaching the end of its service life and no longer meets the transportation needs of the local community and the region. This project proposed to address these deficiencies by reconstructing IL 84 with a bi-direction left turn lane from 5th Avenue to 7th Street, constructing a sidewalk and a multi-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians, and improving drainage with a storm sewer system. To address traffic backups at Cleveland Road, this intersection will be signalized and the left turn lane will be lengthened.

This schedule is subject to change due to availability of funding for construction activities to begin.
