Update – 8/16/21

Last week, driveways within the project limits were paved with hot-mix asphalt. Aggregate shoulders were also installed along the east side of Fremont Center Road.

Guardrail installation was completed along the south side of IL RT 60, west of Fremont Center Road. Holes were cored in the asphalt shoulder so that the posts could be driven to the appropriate depth.

Temporary striping for the second stage of construction was installed on Fremont Center Road and IL RT 60. Traffic was shifted south onto to the new pavement along IL RT 60 and the concrete barrier was relocated north. This will allow work to take place along the north side of IL RT 60.

This week, landscaping will take place along Fremont Center Road and IL RT 60 and pavement removal will begin along the north side of IL RT 60.

On Tuesday, 8/17/21, the temporary traffic signal at Fremont Center Road and IL RT 60 will be turned on and Fremont Center Road will be opened to traffic.
