I-80 Des Plaines River Bridge Replacement

Public Outreach



Over the last approximately 2 years, the Department has been conducting additional focused community outreach efforts for the I-80 Des Plaines River Bridge Replacement portion of the project. This outreach has been ongoing to examine the impacts of the proposed Des Plaines River Bridge replacement to the surrounding community. Input was gathered from communities that could be directly or indirectly impacted by the Des Plaines River Bridge replacement and those who may experience a disproportionally high and adverse effect as a result of this improvement without additional mitigation measures. A draft Community Impact Assessment (CIA) report was developed based on this outreach. The comment period has concluded and the CIA report has been completed in September 2022 based on this outreach.

For more information and to view the September 2022 CIA report, please visit our Community Impact Analysis section.
