Fremont Center Road Improvement
The Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) is currently studying safety improvements to the intersection of Fremont Center Road and IL 60. Through the project study process, it was determined that safety would be improved by realigning Fremont Center Road to intersect IL 60 closer to a 90 degree angle, and include a traditional traffic signal. The intersection will also be widened to include turn lanes for all turning movements. The new Fremont Center Road alignment matches potential future roadway alignments in the area.

This project is about to enter into Phase II engineering, where the design work and right of way acquisition process will take place. The project is estimated to cost $2.5 million for construction, and is currently programmed for 2019 .

Midlothian and Gilmer
The Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) is currently involved in Phase II engineering for the improvement of the intersection of Gilmer Road and Midlothian Road. A traditional signalized intersection was selected to improve roadway and intersection safety and traffic operation at this location. LCDOT is in the final stage of design and right of way acquisition is underway. The $11.3 million project is programmed for construction in 2020.
Wilson and Nippersink
Lake County Division of Transportation announced plans are being prepared for a new traffic signal to be installed at the intersection of Wilson Road and Nippersink Road. Motorists can expect to see pre-stage work such as tree removal, erosion control measures, retaining wall preparation and utility relocations happening in 2017. Most of the work to widen the roadway to make way for the new turn lanes and traffic signals will begin in 2018. The project is expected to take a full construction season to complete.
