95th Street and Plainfield-Naperville Road Intersection Improvements
In 2017, Will County Division of Transportation-led work to expand the intersection at 95th Street and Plainfield-Naperville Road began. To accommodate construction, the intersection was reduced from two lanes to one lane of traffic in each direction through approximately mid-December. Additional work is expected to take place in spring 2018.
- Latest Project Updates
December 5: Starting the week of December 11, the intersection of 95th Street and Plainfield-Naperville Road will go into a winter shutdown mode. Two lanes in each direction will be open, but there will be periodic daytime lane closures to allow the contractor to continue work, weather permitting.
In the spring of 2018, the contractor will complete the medians (which will require full-time lane closures for a period of time), the final surface of asphalt, pavement markings, installation of the permanent traffic signal, landscaping, and other miscellaneous work. Once a timeframe for these improvements is known, it will be noted on this webpage.
November 6: The left turn lanes at all intersection approaches re-opened.
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.
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.
