Reducing congestion is a top priority for Lake County. Congestion results in delays and lost time. It impacts quality of life and can lead to increases in crashes. Based on a countywide review of congested intersections and crash data, the Illinois Route 59 / Grand Avenue (IL 59 /Grand) intersection has been identified for possible improvements.

The Lake County Division of Transportation (LCDOT) completed a preliminary engineering study to develop potential improvements for the intersection. This study took an in-depth look at the current and future needs at this intersection and develop solutions to reduce congestion and improve safety.
