Gross Point Road Improvements Underway

Gross Point and Grant Proposed improvements

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has begun a road reconstruction project on Gross Point Road from just north of Golf Road to Old Orchard Road.

Improvements

Work includes new pavement, road widening, storm sewers, sidewalk improvements, and traffic signal upgrades at Old Orchard Road.

Enhancing the Village’s network of bike lanes and infrastructure, the project will also add dedicated on-street bike lanes on each side of the roadway. (View Skokie’s Bike Map.)

Traffic impacts

During construction, Gross Point Road will be one way southbound between Old Orchard Road and Payne Street. Northbound and southbound access to NorthShore Skokie Hospital from Gross Point Road will be maintained throughout the project.

Update: Beginning the week of December 4, 2023, there will be a traffic shift on Gross Point Road from Old Orchard Road to Golf Road. Traffic will remain southbound only but traffic will be shifted from the west side of Gross Point Road to the east side of the road. Please use caution.

Timeline

The project began in June 2023 and is anticipated to be completed in 2024.

Funding

The $8 million project is primarily supported by federal environmental and transportation program grants, with local matches provided by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). The total cost to the Village is less than $200,000. IDOT is covering the local match for the federal grants and will then transfer roadway jurisdiction to the Village after the completion of the project.
