Construction continues on Weber Road. Motorists should be aware that beginning Monday 4/6, there will be a new traffic pattern implemented near Grand Ave and 135th Street. Expect delays. Please pay attention to traffic control signs and drive safe.
The goal of this project is to ease congestion by adding additional lanes of traffic on Weber Road from 135th Street to 119th Street and rebuilding the I-55 Interchange.
In an effort to assist both businesses and residents through this project, useful information and contact info has been posted below.
The new design is called a diverging diamond. To view a simulation of the completed project, click here.
