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.
NOTICE OF ROAD CONSTRUCTION - RIDGE ROAD PROJECT
GRUNDY COUNTY HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT – NOTICE OF ROAD CONSTRUCTION
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. The work is expected to last two construction seasons and will be completed in fall of 2020.
Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction as the contractor will be removing the existing roadway, installing new storm sewers, placing new concrete pavement, curbs and sidewalks and a multi-use path throughout the corridor.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changing conditions and signs in the work zone, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and remain alert for worker and equipment.
For question / concerns, please contact the County Engineer, Eric Gibson, P.E., at the Grundy County Highway Department .
