Homer Glen 143rd Street and Lemont Road Federal-Aid Intersection

Overview 

The Village of Homer Glen received authorization from the Will County Governmental League to use Federal Funds for completing safety and operational improvements at the 143rd Street/Lemont Road (State Street) intersection. Improving this intersection had regional significance with the construction of the I-355 interchange at 143rd Street less than one mile to the west. This improvement project included pavement reconstruction and intersection channelization to provide separate left turn lanes in all directions and separate right turn lanes in three directions.
