About the Village of Minooka

The Village of Minooka is a charming community founded in 1869 along the route of the Rock Island Railroad. Minooka is Pottawatomie for “Good Land”. Transportation has played an important role in the development of the community. More convenient access was made available when Interstate 80 was built in the 1960’s with access ramps to Minooka. According to the 2010 census, the population of Minooka is 10,924. However, residential growth is not the only growth, the commercial and industrial growth has followed the residential boom, providing necessary services, jobs, and a balanced tax base.

Ridge Road Widening Project in Minooka

The Grundy County Highway Department, in coordination with the Village of Minooka, is planning to begin the Ridge Road project in the spring of 2019.  Ridge Road will be widened to five lanes from Mondamin Street to McEvilly Road in Minooka.  In an effort to shorten the construction period and disruption to the community, we are working hard to complete the project in one construction season.  It is necessary to completely close Ridge Road from Mondamin Street to McEvilly Road from June 2019 through October 2019.

 

A public meeting has been scheduled to hear comments from the public on ways to decrease the impact of this closure to residents and drivers.  The meeting is scheduled for Thursday September 13th at 6:30 PM in the Community Room at the Minooka Village Hall located at 121 McEvilly Road in Minooka.

 

Residents are encouraged to watch the Village of Minooka newsletter for more information as it becomes available.  If there are additional questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact the Grundy County Highway Department at (815) 942-0363 or at highway@grundyco.org.
