River Road and Route 52 Intersection
This Village of Shorewood led project received federal funding administered by IDOT at an 80/20 split. The project was awarded to D Construction for $3,082,206.02 including the cost of the bridge which is $770,144.38 of the total project cost. The Village’s portion of the entire project is approx. $616,000.
The proposed improvements include widening and resurfacing US 52 to two through lanes and a left-turn lane in each direction. River Road will be widened and resurfaced to include a single through lane, a right-turn lane, and a left-turn lane in each direction. The existing traffic signal at the intersection will be revised to accommodate the proposed roadway improvement. The Hammel Creek channel along the north side of US 52 will be regraded within the existing right-of-way to accommodate the roadway widening. The bridge was required to address Pedestrian accommodations over the Hammel Creek spillway. The pedestrian access was a requirement to assist in receiving federal funding for this project. A multi-use path is proposed to be constructed between the pond and US 52 west of the intersection to connect to the existing Village path to the northwest. Sidewalks will be reconstructed where necessary to American with Disabilities Act criteria. Glen Mor Drive is proposed to be converted to right-in/right-out only access at River Road to prevent backups into the intersection of US 52 and River Road.
Proposed improvements to US 52 and River Road
Proposed pedestrian Bridge to be located near the Northwest corner of Route 52 and River Road
