IDOT provided a glimpse to the public of an anticipated project to widen Rte. 47 in Kendall County from Caton Farm Rd. to Il 71. Attorney Jordan Walker from Sever Storey was present and answered questions for landowners with regards to the project and just compensation.

The project will require around $2 million in land acquisition and will affect 46 parcels. It is currently in the beginning stage, but phase 1 engineering is anticipated to be finished by the end of 2013. Using this as a barometer, Sever Storey expects land acquisition to begin in 2014.
