While IDOT aggressively pursues acquiring land for the proposed 159th St. Road Project in Homer Glen, IL, landowners are corresponding with an equally aggressive manner.

“Our livelihood depends on that road,” said Bob Schmidt, owner of Wheel-Go Camping, a camping equipment and recreational vehicle retailer at 159th Street and Parker Road for 35 years.

The 159th project, which will widen the popular road predominantly in Orland Park and Homer Glen, is expected to affect around 300 property owners.

Schmidt joined a group of village, township and Will County officials who traveled to Springfield recently to meet with IDOT Secretary Ann Schneider and Omer Osman, IDOT’s chief engineer and director of the division of highways.
