The Tri-County Access Project is a comprehensive regional study that will determine how to ease traffic congestion in Lake, northern Cook and eastern McHenry counties in Illinois. Various transportation alternatives have been studied and discussed over the years – including the extension of Illinois Route 53 and improvements along Illinois Route 120 in Lake County – and no major infrastructure project has been completed. Travel demand and congestion continues to increase and if no action is taken, the average speed on many roads within the region is expected to drop to 14 miles per hour within 20 years. Improvements in the project area are proposed to reduce congestion, improve reliability of travel, improve travel options connecting major origins and destinations, and improve local and regional travel efficiency.
