Public Comment Sought on Proposed Improvements To U.S. 20 at Shales Parkway in Elgin

The Illinois Department of Transportation is inviting the public to learn more and comment about the preliminary engineering and environmental studies for the improvement of U.S. 20 at Shales Parkway in Elgin.

Instead of hosting a regular public meeting, IDOT is sharing details on the study and encourages public participation until Oct. 20 through the project website: www.US20atShalesStudy.org.

The purpose of this virtual public outreach is to:

  • Provide an overview of the study process and schedule.
  • Present anticipated public involvement activities.
  • Obtain public input on the transportation issues and needs of the study area.

The improvements are necessary to address safety concerns at the intersection, including congestion as well as crash history and frequency.

Additional information is available on the project website: www.US20atShalesStudy.org. The public can watch a presentation about the proposed project, view exhibits, leave comments and provide IDOT with questions.

Comments received by Oct. 20 will become part of the official public record. Comments can also be submitted via email to info@US20atShalesStudy.org.

Written comments can be mailed to:
