Location: Addison and Itasca, IL


The Illinois Department of Transportation required the reconstruction and widening of over four miles of Illinois Route 53 (Rohlwing Road) from Army Trail Road to the Elgin O’Hare Expressway in the villages of Addison and Itasca. The existing two lane roadway needed to be widened to five lanes comprised of two lanes in each direction and a center median for left turns.

As part of the reconstruction, the project provided for new and improved roadway lighting and major intersection improvements including barrier medians and traffic signal modernization. Roadway shoulders and drainage ditches were replaced with concrete curbs and gutters along with an underground storm sewer system. New sidewalks along the route were also constructed.
