I-80 Des Plaines River Bridge Replacement Public Outreach


Based on extensive community outreach, a Community Impact Assessment (CIA) report was developed and on September 27, 2022 a Findings of No Significant Impact was received from the Federal Highway Administration. With this approved document, the planning phase of the project is complete, and we will be transitioning to contract plan preparation, land acquisition and then construction.  The Department will continue its community outreach efforts throughout the project.
