Welcome to the website for the proposed Wood Street/Ashland Avenue improvements. 

The Illinois Department of Transportation (Department) is performing a preliminary engineering and environmental (Phase I) study for Wood Street/Ashland Avenue from south of US Route 6 (159th Street) to 138th Street within the City of Harvey and Villages of Dixmoor and Riverdale in Cook County. This improvement is included in the Department’s FY 2014-2019 Proposed Multi-Modal Transportation Improvement Program as an “Illinois Jobs Now!” project. The current engineering efforts are targeted to enable a contact letting in the middle portion of the current multi-year program contingent upon plan readiness, and acquisition and funding availability through the future annual legislative appropriations. This study is following the Department’s Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) process.

This website will provide up-to-date information on the progress of the project, relevant project-related materials and details about upcoming public meetings and opportunities to participate. Please see the Side Panel for additional information.
