The U.S. 30 project area is located in the Village of Sugar Grove. The roadway is currently constrained by the Aurora Municipal Airport to the north and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, airport, commercial, agricultural, and residential properties to the south. Overall, the project area contains a mixture of commercial, institutional, agricultural, and residential land uses as well as vacant property.
The U.S. 30 corridor project is approximately 2.6 miles in length with an eastern terminus at IL 47 and a western terminus at Dugan Road. The two side streets that intersect U.S. 30, Veterans Memorial Parkway and Municipal Drive, have project limits extending 750 feet along each segment. The two intersections at the west portion of the Project have been advanced from the overall project study, with the intersection of Dugan Road and Granart Road being undertaken by the Village of Sugar Grove, and the intersection of Dugan Road and U.S. 30 being expedited by the Department. The results of these two advanced studies will be reflected in the overall Phase I study for the Project.
