Theodore Street Corridor Improvements

Joliet, Illinois

  • V3 is providing Phase I design services for corridor improvements which include the widening and resurfacing for two miles of Theodore Street from Drauden Road to IL Route 59.

  • To improve safety, a fifth, median/left turn lane will be added to assist traffic flow on Theodore Street and potentially decrease the number and severity of accidents.

  • Two new traffic signals will be installed at the intersections with Drauden Road and Wesmere Parkway.

  • We anticipate replacing the street lighting system with new LED street lights. An evaluation of the existing equipment will be performed to identify any reusable items.

  • Our design will also correct existing accessibility issues as well as minimize right-of-way acquisitions and utility relocations.

  • The project will follow the IDOT federal processing in anticipation of federal construction funding.  Motor Fuel Tax funds will be utilized for Phase I and Phase II engineering.
