• LaGrange Road carries 40,000 vehicles per day and is expected to carry more than 65,000 vehicles per day by year 2040. • The improvements currently being made are necessary to improve traffic flow and safety throughout this essential traffic corridor. • Drivers may notice a number of visually appealing additions to the corridor; such as trees, plants, lighting, pavers and more. • What will result is improved traffic flow, a safer roadway

Thank you for your patience while IDOT is working diligently to complete the LaGrange Road widening process.

We are now in the home stretch with most of the work complete or scheduled to be complete on LaGrange Road by the end of the year. It may seem to some that LaGrange Road has been under construction forever. Several different projects to repair, widen, update and better this main corridor through our village have taken place over many years. See the timeline below for specifics. and a more aesthetically pleasing LaGrange Road. • Visit the village website at www.orlandpark.org for current project information and updates.
