Irving Park Road IDOT Improvements Update


Irving Park Road IDOT Improvements Update

IDOT has completed work for the winter on the Irving Park Road improvements between Emerson Avenue and Judd Avenue.  The work is not complete as the Contractor will be back in the spring to begin the work on the south side of the roadway, as well as installation of new traffic signals and the resurfacing of the entire roadway.  It is anticipated that the remainder of the work will be completed by the end of June 2022.

The following are a summary of the improvements that will be completed as part of this project:

  • A new Center Turn Lane will be installed between Scott Street and Emerson Avenue.
  • A new Left Turn with a turn arrow will be installed from westbound Irving Park Road to Judd Avenue.
  • A new sidewalk will be installed on the south side of Irving including the construction of a new sidewalk from Scott Street to Judd Avenue. The installation of this sidewalk will result in a signalized crossing at Judd Avenue and Irving for pedestrians wishing to cross Irving Park Road, therefore eliminating the need for pedestrians to cross a Scott Street.
  • A new 8’ wide shared use path (for both pedestrians and bicyclists) will be installed on the south side of Irving Park Road from Judd Avenue to Emerson Avenue.
