GRAIN BELT EXPRESS CLEAN POWER LINE PROJECT

The Grain Belt Express Clean Power Line will deliver 3,500 megawatts of renewable energy from western Kansas to communities in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and several other Midwestern states that have a strong demand for energy. The clean energy will be transported via an approximately 700-mile overhead, high-voltage direct current transmission (HVDC) line, which will require large swaths of land acquisition across these areas.

The development and construction of the Grain Belt Express Clean Line is an estimated $2 billion. This project is still in the preliminary stages and still needs approval from several government entities. The estimated time for the required approvals and construction of the Project is five to seven years. Land acquisition began in 2010 and is expected to be finalized in 2014.

 

GRAND PRAIRIE GATEWAY TRANSMISSION LINE PROJECT

ComEd’s Grand Prairie Gateway Project is a proposed 345,000 volt electric transmission line that will connect the company’s already exsisting substations in Bryon, IL and South Elgin, IL.  The line will cross four counties in Illinois: Ogle, DeKalb, Kane and DuPage.  ComEd has filed a petition with the ICC on December 2, 2013, and is now awaiting approval. The Project is expected to be completed and in service by 2017.

HIGH-SPEED RAIL (10TH STREET CORRIDOR) PROJECT

The 10th Street Corridor Project in Springfield, Illinois is part of a 1.6 billion dollar High-Speed Rail Improvement Project stretching over 284 miles from Chicago to St. Louis.  Costing roughly $314 million dollars, the 10th Street Corridor section consists of relocating the existing rail line on 3rd Street to 10th Street.  This relocation will also include rail improvements, underpasses, and an overpass.

According to the City of Springfield, the project will be completed in segments with the first segment more than likely starting at Carpenter Street. This project is still in the design phase, but if federal funding is approved construction could start as early as 2014.

Illinois project

This project just received federal approval in August of 2012. The project study limits extend from IL Route 176, at the north, to the intersection of IL Route 60 (Townline Road) and IL Route 83. The planned improvements address roadway and operational deficiencies, traffic safety, traffic congestion, and delays. The Village of Mundelein is the lead agency on the project.

The interchange project includes the conversion of the existing partial interchange at IL 59 and I-55 to a full access diverging diamond interchange also known as a DDI. A DDI is a double cross over diamond. The diamond shaped configuration allows for two directions of traffic on a bridge to cross to the opposite side of the bridge. The benefits of this type of interchange include improved safety and operations. This project provides connections for pedestrians and bicyclists over I-55 to IL 59 and new auxiliary lanes between IL 59 and US 52 to improve congestion and safety for vehicles entering and exiting the roadway.

Illinois project

Projects planned along I-80 are estimated to cost $1.2 billion and are included in the department’s fiscal year 2020-2025 program. IDOT is focusing on 16 miles of I-80 in Will County between Ridge Road in Minooka and U.S. Route 30 in New Lenox. Planned improvements include replacing the bridge at Rock Run Creek, widening the Houbolt Road bridge, reconstructing lanes and adding other roadway improvements between I-55 and Houbolt Road and replacing the bridge at Joliet Junction Trail.

The broader project’s proposed improvements involve the rehabilitation of the bridges along the Route 20 corridor. The estimated overall cost of the project is $80 million, and construction is not currently funded. The interchange improvements involve replacement of the Route 31 bridge over Route 20 to provide two lanes in each direction with left-turn lanes. The project also includes pedestrian and bicyclist improvements. The $10 million interchange project is currently funded

Illinois project

The proposed improvement will reconstruct the existing US 41 at IL 176 interchange and the intersection of IL 176 at IL 43 with additional through lanes, additional auxiliary lanes, improved geometrics, replacement of traffic signals, and improved drainage.  Pump Station 37 for the US 41 underpass at IL 176 will be reconstructed and Pump Station 41 for the US 41 underpass at Canadian National Railroad will be improved

Illinois project
The proposed scope of work for this project is to reconstruct the mainly two-lane roadway corridor to provide improved traffic mobility and capacity.  IDOT proposes the following scope of work while improving safety and mobility for vehicles and pedestrians:
  • Two lanes in each direction separated by a grass or raised median,
  • The addition of paved shoulders through high speed areas and turn lanes throughout,
  • Accommodations for sidewalk and shared-use path to support pedestrian and cyclists
  • Inclusion of water quality features, such as, bioswales and/or native plantings and ditch modifications, which, provide filtration for improved water quality.

Illinois project

The project, which includes plans for more traffic lanes, five roundabout intersections, a bicycle lane and a hard median, currently is in its first phase. The second phase includes contract plan preparation and land acquisition. Construction crews begin working in the third phase. The project will stretch about five miles, from Charles Road to Highway 14. IDOT estimates the cost of construction at about $76 million.
