~ IDOT Army Trail Road/Route 59 Intersection Improvements - The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that improvements to the intersection of Illinois 59 (Sutton Road) and Army Trail Road, in Bartlett, will begin, weather permitting, 9/3/2019.

In order to complete the work, daily lane closures, lane width reductions to 11 feet and lane shifts will be necessary. The project consists of widening the road for dual left turn lanes on Illinois 59, adding a right turn lane on Army Trail Road, replacing a storm sewer, relocating a noise abatement wall, installing new medians and modernizing traffic signals. The work is expected to be complete by October 2020.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
