The State of Illinois through its Department of Transportation is on a mission to “improve Business Loop 55 in the Village of Sherman by trimming and removing trees within the Illinois Department of Transportation right of way”. Work began on Monday, March 18 and will take place along the IDOT easement from Carter Brothers Lumber northward to I-55 interchange. The improvement will consist of removal and disposal of trees, seeding and mulching.
It is anticipated all tree removal will be completed before April 1, 2019. Seeding and clean up will be completed by May 1, 2019.
The State of Illinois assumes all costs related to this improvement. No Village funds are used for this improvement.
