The Village remains proactive in addressing transportation needs. Romeoville's location continues to be attractive for local development. What is even more attractive, is Romeoville's ongoing commitment to improve existing routes and secure additional modes of transportation for residents and businesses.
The improved Weber Road interchange was completed in November 2022., part of a $96.7 million investment to improve safety and mobility. The project’s $75.7 million centerpiece involved widening Weber Road and reconfiguring the interchange with Interstate 55 into a diverging-diamond design. By routing vehicles to the opposite side of Weber Road and eliminating left turns across traffic, the design will help to decrease crashes and improve pedestrian and bicycle access across I-55.
A third lane was added in each direction to Weber Road between Rodeo Drive/Remington Boulevard and Normantown Road, reducing chronic congestion and providing faster, safer access to the expressway for the 35,000 vehicles that pass through the interchange daily. A $21 million companion project by Will County extended the Weber Road improvements south of Normantown Road to Romeo Road.
The project also included modernized traffic signals at Normantown Road, Remington Boulevard/Windham Parkway, Rodeo Drive/Remington Boulevard and the interchange ramps, as well as new LED lighting, improved drainage, raised medians and landscaping on Weber Road. Sidewalks and a new multiuse path connect to other local trails.
Planning is underway for the next phase of Weber Road pavement widening. This project will begin where the last project ended south of Romeo Road and will continue to north of Airport Road. After completion of this phase, three continuous lanes of traffic in each direction will be open through the entire village from Renwick Road to north of the I-55 interchange.
I-55 Improvements at airport road & route 126A new interchange is coming to Airport Road/IL 126 in a $181.4 million investment from the State of Illinois. The new interchange will facilitate better traffic flow and access for all of northwestern Will County, as well as enhance traffic safety by reducing congestion. A public hearing was held in the Fall 2022 to approve the preliminary engineering design of the two interchanges. IDOT has funded the final engineering, land acquisition, and construction of the two interchanges, which is scheduled to take place by 2025. View the I-55 at Airport Road & Route 126 Study.
PINNACLE DRIVE EXTENSION
As part of a $3 million grant, Pinnacle Drive was extended south to create an unbroken connection between Renwick Rd. and Airport Rd. Planning is underway for a second extension from Airport Road to Taylor Road.
