95th Street and Plainfield-Naperville Road Intersection Improvements

This summer and fall, Will County Division of Transportation-led work to expand the intersection at 95th Street and Plainfield-Naperville Road will take place. To accommodate construction, the intersection will be reduced from two lanes to one lane of traffic in each direction through approximately mid-November.

Latest Project Updates

November 6: The left turn lanes at all intersection approaches have re-opened. All lanes are expected to be open by the end of November 2017. Final asphalt surfacing, striping and landscaping restoration will take place in spring 2018.

October 27: Beginning October 30, the left turn lanes on all approaches at the 95th St/Plainfield-Naperville Road intersection were closed for approximately one week to allow for the reconstruction of the center of the intersection. This closure was required to complete the majority of the intersection improvements within this year’s construction season and re-open all lanes to traffic.

October 5: Traffic on 95th Street at Plainfield-Naperville Road shifted from the north side of the street to the south side on this day to allow for continued construction.

September 4: The contractor for this project shifted traffic on Plainfield-Naperville Road to the west side of the roadway during this week. Construction is continuing on the east side of the roadway through the end of the construction season.

In this phase of work, both Timber Creek Lane and Breckenridge will be closed at Plainfield-Naperville road to all traffic. Detour routes in the neighborhoods will be posted.  

April 4: Work on this project has begun. 95th Street is now closed down to one lane in each direction at the intersection.

Project Overview

This project will include the construction of double left turn lanes on the north and south legs of the intersection and new right turn lanes on the north and east legs of the intersection. The work will also include the widening of the bridge over Spring Brook, the extension of the noise wall along 95th Street to Plainfield-Naperville Road, upgraded street lighting and traffic signal improvements.

Timeline

Construction began the week of April 3, 2017, and lasts through approximately mid-November 2017, pending weather or unforeseen circumstances.

Impacts to Travel

Throughout construction, there will be full-time lane closures restricting traffic from two lanes to one lane in each direction on both 95th Street and Plainfield-Naperville Road. Motorists should expect significant delays in this area and find alternate routes or allow extra travel time to reach their destination.
